Without pain, we won’t realize mistakes.
One day, our health will worsen. Our loved ones will die. We will make mistakes. We will fail.
When that happens, it’s painful.
- We can deny (and avoid) the pain.
- We can learn from it.
Once you understand the cause of pain and devise a way to work with, or through it, the quicker you can stand back on your feet. I observe this is true for me.
Journaling, therapy, or seeking out people who experience similar experiences to gain understanding.
The good news is the faster we learn from pain, the faster we can get through it.
Pain + reflections = progress.
And that might be the breakthrough that many can benefit from.
