Asked and Received
I had the pleasure/pain of experiencing something that has not only been missing from my life but something that I need.
A pleasurable experience because it felt good. I felt whole. I was honestly happy.
A painful experience because now that thing is gone and I'm only left with the reminder of what's been missing from my life. The new (and expanded) life that my pre-existing emptiness has gained.
At this point I cannot be convinced that ignorance isn't absolute bliss...
