The Pain

So the here’s the scoop on pain. In my bioethics class there was a quote that was brought up and it goes a little something like this..

“Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.”

Humans are tactile, sensual beings. We are meant to feel everything, including pain. As much as we try to protect ourselves from pain sometimes, it is most often pain that protects us.


See, not all pain is bad. What about when you’re laughing so hard your sides hurt, and you’re gasping for breath?


That is probably one of the best feelings in the world to be honest.

Or what about a mother in labor? Probably one of the worst pains to experience, but the end result is giving birth to new life.


–The day after a good workout.

And even, love.


This just might hurt a little. Love hurts sometimes when you do it right.”

– John Legend – Save Room


If we grew up never knowing pain, how would we know reward? How would we know true pleasure and happiness without feeling pain? It is that which makes it all worth it in the end.

And the pain that we feel when we lose something special to us, only affirms its value in our lives.


Without pain, life would have no meaning.

It makes life real.

But the thing is, we do not have to suffer when we are in pain,
we can choose to grow because of it.

Pain tests us.

We can scar,

or we can heal.


Life is what you make it.

It’s the “final season.”

Good luck, and keep focused.

This labor and pain is transient, do not be discouraged by what is temporary.
