The complete utter and total feeling of worthlessness is becoming more and more common. While no one is worthless these feelings are real and create great pain. Pain comes from many sources. The one thing we humans are accustomed to is pain relief. With great strides in technology we enjoy many advancements in pain relief and therefore expect to be relieved of pain easily and without question. Yet for some the pain seems to go without treatment or relief of any kind as they struggle endlessly with what seems to be hopeless unending pain. It is difficult for many to understand such pain as they have never known it to such a degree. The type of pain driving a human being to consider what seems tragic is often something many cannot comprehend.
