“Sometimes opening your eyes may be the most painful thing you ever have to do”

"Sometimes opening your eyes may be the most painful thing you ever have to do” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying probably originated on a meme in December 2013, but authorship is uncertain.

“Sometimes the most painful thing one can do is opening your eyes and seeing reality for what it really is” was posted on Twitter by Nyakallo Likotsi on September 9, 2012. “Sometimes OPENING your EYES can be the most PAINFUL thing but it has to be DONE !” was posted on Twitter by stephania_credit on December 2, 2013. “Sometimes opening your eyes may be the most painful thing you ever have to do” was posted on Twitter by Demlom Apostle of Altruism on December 3, 2013.

“Creativity Alliance have been hanging their flag in the town and putting stickers onto bus stops, including one particularly delightful effort, which is of a white, blank-faced man, putting a razor-blade to his closed eye with the caption, ‘Sometimes opening your eyes might be the most painful thing you have to do’” was printed in Vice on March 24, 2015.

White Supremacists Are Trying (and Failing) to Win Over a Sleepy Scottish Town

Creativity Alliance have been hanging their flag in the town and putting stickers onto bus stops, including one particularly delightful effort, which is of a white, blank-faced man, putting a razor-blade to his closed eye with the caption, “Sometimes opening your eyes might be the most painful thing you have to do.” Mate, ever queued for a jumbo haddock in Bervie on a Saturday evening? You don’t know pain.
