Pain

It has always been curious to me why people give so much of their time and energy trying to avoid pain, when it’s just another fact of life. There is actually nothing to do about pain, which is why it’s so stupid to take pain killers, because pain killers will eventually create a worse pain than the pain you were in, if they don’t kill you first. The truth is that pain is simply a reality, much like pleasure. It always has been. And in the same way that we’d like to keep pleasure in our lives, we must try to do the same with pain, because it is not going away. It is not going to leave us alone, no matter how much we disapprove of it. As contradictory as it might sound, the sooner we come to terms with pain, the sooner our pain will diminish. dwp

    Thanks for this insightful piece. Probably painis less painful when/if it is accepted. Not accepting it doesn’t make it go away or diminish it.
