A Duel between Pain and Itch






On a nut shell, we all know that it’s easier to bear pain than itch. Say, you are wearing a shoe with multiple laces. The tight feeling of that shoe in your foot can be tolerated for a good 8-10 hour wear. Now, feeling an intense itch on the foot inside that tight shoe will surely make you go crazy. You will not endure the itch. You will surely take time to unlace the shoe and take it off to scratch that crazy itch big-time! Yes, scratch it until you feel that simple heaven of relieving the itch. This kind of “itch vs. pain” school of thought can be applied to all body parts. From head, to the chest and yeah, down there until you reach the feet.

Poetically, Itch vs. Pain is also quite a brain boomer. It’s basically saying that as human, we tend to go to directions which we see as more convenient than the other. If we see pain or hardships even before we start dealing with it, we turn to the more pleasing side of doing it the easy way - Very much like the scratching an itch fashion.

Now on a cheesy take, it is perceived by many hopeless romantics that scratching an itch is easier than bearing a pain. But, some go the other way. The itch of flirtation is quite prevalent these days. Flirting is deemed to be a convenient way of getting through the night. The pain of staying alone and empty after the stint of flirtations is actually something that will not last long until the next flirt comes around. Now, if you’re a flirt, I didn’t mean to offend you.

Forgive me for these rambling thoughts. It’s the product of my great fascination on how true it is that pain is easier to endure than itch. And I know that you are nodding your head now like a possessed dork in agreement or maybe personal accounts. All my laughs for you.

hays...yeah...pain is much bearable than itch...i think itch is something that could be attended to immediately...you could do something with it instantly...just a scratch away. pain on the other hand, it takes a longer process to achieve analgesia...you have to take medication and wait for the effects..hehe

pain goes deeper than an itch..you can always scratch an itch away but pain is much, much harder to get rid of :)

I could definitely relate to the itchy feet kind of thing.

Not that I have alipunga something but sometimes it's just itchy. I remember being in a restaurant one time and I really had to remove my big bulky orange shoes just to have my other foot scratch the other.

Para ka kasing pinapatay if you don't deal with it. So, yeah, up to a certain extent. I prefer pain over itch.

Wag lang yung tipong mahohospital kana sa sakit ha.kkk
