What was the greatest pain that you’ve experienced in your life?
The most painful experience I had was when I broke my right arm when playing basketball. At the moment of impact I felt nothing, but as soon as it settled, then the pain kicked in. Man, it was really painful, especially when the doctors tried to put in back into its right place.
Pain is part of life.
Unfortunately, we cannot avoid pain.
As much as we want to avoid it, we just can’t.
Physical pain maybe for a moment, but there is one pain that can stay for a long time if we do not fix it; that is EMOTIONAL PAIN.
You do not feel it physically, but you feel it emotionally.
It is like a dagger plunged into your heart.
The pain is overwhelming that it can affect the way you look at yourself and the way you treat others.
We experience pain when we experience rejection; when we fail, when we experience being outcast, when we are ignored, when we feel abandoned and neglected, when we are betrayed, and many more.
If I am going to rank the cause of pain, I may say; BETRAYAL can be on top of the list.
Imagine giving your all and forsaking everything just to put your trust in a person. Then the person, whom you loved and trusted most, broke the trust and betrays you. Ouuuccchhhhh! Especially when the person turned its back and ignored all the good things you’ve done for them.
Emotional pain left unchecked, can leave a long-term damage to a person’s outlook and perspective in life.
The important thing is; how we can fight when we are in pain, how can we be healed from the feeling of pain, how can we move on from the feeling of pain, how can we be brave in the midst of pain.
Pain is not here to destroy us but to bring out the best in us.
Pain is present in our life to reveal what we are really made out of.
Do you want to know how to handle and overcome pain?
If you do, please follow me tomorrow to finish this blog.
But for now, I want you to…
THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
How are you feeling today?
Are you living in pain?
Did you just lie?
Come on, you can never move on in life if you do not acknowledge that there is something wrong with your life.
