I'm confused whether I can make it in the active voice and write, "pain feels double", or just leave it like that.
Pain is felt double when it is your loved one who suffers.
You can't make this sentence active voice without a clear subject doing the action.
"One feels pain doubly . . ." would be the best way to write it, but it doesn't flow as well in active voice.
Because passive voice is not incorrect grammar, and it does have a place in effective writing, I suggest leaving the sentence the way you have it.
