“For Colorless Pinks”
How pain, feelings, and speech in perceived in the human mind varies in different societies and is even understood differently by different genders. The constant endurance of pains and their reinterpretations constitute to how we evolve.

Suffering is inevitable and it can make us numb or we can choose to adapt.
