It will get easier. Really, it will.

Usually you see time on the X axis, because t=0 being on the far right is a little strange.

And I think the hurt is still great.

When time-traveling, the father back you go, the more pain you feel.

Ray-Ray said...

:o)

Ted said...

The more hurt I'm feeling, the less time I seem to have.

Thank you for putting up this tonight...It helped me with my emotional pain.

I agree with Shan, the independent variable is almost always on the bottom of the graph.

Mad Monk said...

It sounds like a platitude, but I've found truth in this.

Rick said...

Wherever the independent variable goes, it's comforting to know that Hurt gets smaller without ever truly becoming nill.

Carla said...

Thanks, it makes me feel better.

I write about in my blog and leave a trackback.

Could also apply to William's career...

Marc André said...

It does. But I would have put plateaus here and there, and the occasional spike.

opiated said...

ms. hagy, you got this all wrong. looks like as time increases so does hurt.

Anonymous said...

time should be on the x axis because it's the independant variable

I finally found a way to phrase this one that makes some amount of sense: As you run out of time, you run out of hurt.

That doesn't make sense. The x-axis is the variable you can control. Plus, if you want to use your way, it would be: "As time runs out (becomes less), it hurts more"

This is either wrong or the author is trying to imple:

"The more it hurts, the less time you have"

Alex N said...

Perhaps the message is more on time to realize it should hurt? I'm going to possibly interpret more than I should for a free-hand drawing, but for the illustrated area, the large middle region looks constant. I would guess there's a constant value of hurt-time, for hurt in, for example, the open interval (suffering a drive-by yelling, death of a pet).

The horizontal axis isn't always the variable you control; it's also the measured input.

This one's worth some thought. Thank you, Jessica.

To all of you "x-axis is the independent variable" folks: take an econ class. You'll come out with your head all twisted. :)

Arrgghh! To all you propeller-headed mathletes who are getting so twisted up in the diagam that you can't even get the point:

It's just supposed to mean that time heals all wounds.

Next!

danny said...

this one could almost be a post secret card. i really like it.

Kath said...

Promise?

Mandie said...

i love your stuff always!

but yeah, as people have said, you've got the x and y axis wrong.

:)

jake said...

i hope that's the truth. time will tell.

soy ink said...

The less time you have, the less you feel hurt. So, find things to do, keep yourself busy, and you will not be so hurt as you would if you had nothing to do.

This is working for me right now :-/
