Perhaps you feel pain from neglecting your boredom or some other aspect of your state of mind.
A lot depends on the degree you are separated from yourself.
Are you avoiding the pain of working it out?
Often, it is a matter of engaging your boredom till your state of mind changes to a more calm state.
Sometimes the pain is hidden bellow boredom.
This is more difficult and requires some soul searching…
