Do I want to cultivate a CULTURE of Pain Avoidance? or a CULTURE of Pain Endurance?
trying to minimize pain,
rationalize self-comfort from pain,
or any other escape from walking forward through life's pain,
Then how much can I really grow?
Or set an example for ones who are watching me, learning from my responses to pain?
When I endure the pain, embracing the challenge of walking through it - I get strong, wise, tenacious, committed and focused on growing, healing and changing as I persevere.
What if that became the CULTURE I cultivated at home, with my family, friends and co-workers?
Rise up, face pain head on, moving forward, reaching for the other side -
The resolution of perseverance - becoming peace and freedom.
My experience has taught me, when I acknowledge and embrace pain I have more energy to learn and grow than I do if I spend all my energy running, coping, denying, or actively covering my pain.
Now, it's your turn to decide:
Do you want to cultivate a
CULTURE of Pain Avoidance?
CULTURE of Pain Endurance?
