Make it hurt.

Bryan says it unnerves him when I recite his words back to him repeatedly in conversation.

But make it hurt? It’s what I do best. I want to ask him if he believes in messages sent through time and space. I want to ask him if it’s possible whoever said that phrase to him was actually talking to me. If the sole purpose of his encounter with make it hurt was to transmit a single line of encouragement and reflection to me from the Universe.

Maybe another way of saying, do what you do.
