Pain pushes us
Pain causes us to dream,
To dream of a time the pain is gone
Pain drives us to seek comfort
Pain drives us to find relief
Pain helps us identify with others
Pain helps us develop compassion for others
Especially those who are, have been,
And will be in our shoes
Pain drives us to self-discovery
Pain leads us to the question ‘How did I get here?’
Pain helps us reevaluate our decisions
Pain helps us realize our wrongs
Pain helps us learn from our mistakes
Pain helps us rearrange our priorities
Pain helps us make better decisions
Pain helps us to change
Pain is good
If a man has not experienced pain, let him look for one.
And if a man is in pain, let him use it as a driving force to be better.
“…he learnt obedience by the things he suffered”. Hebrews 5:8
