The reality of via dolorosa is often pushed inward. No one can sense anguish from the extern. There’s a fundamental issue (the one you won’t allow yourself to grieve for) that is laying in wait of some other wretched event. And when that misfortune does befall you, it causes an overflow of uncontrollable emotions (during which someone hails you for directions, of course).
Then it’s hard to tell what the real root of your unhappiness is. Via Dolorosa.
