There has to be some sort of science behind hugs. Regarding pain, embracing someone can lift so much bad energy out of you. It’s crazy but whenever something really unfortunate happens to us, the first thing we want to do is be embraced by a loved one. Just someone holding you is like their holding on to your soul that’s leaving your body. Also, when your sad, when two people are close to each other, it’s like the other can almost take all that bad energy and hurt and destroy it. Hugs can also calm people down. Hugs are like this way to bury your hurt into someone you love or admire and letting their spirit sooth you. You don’t hug anyone you don’t like, so when we embrace a loved one, it’s like they have a way to make things better without even saying anything. That’s the funny thing as embracing someone doesn’t require talking. Crazy.
