When we talk about pain, we are referring to an unpleasant sensory or emotional experience, often associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Pain serves as our body’s alarm system, alerting us to issues that require urgent attention.
Pain is our greatest feature. It keeps us alive, and in the modern world, it allows us to understand our capabilities, learn, and grow. To appreciate and understand pain, we need to recognize its transformative potential.
Feeling pain becomes a precursor to the confrontation with our innermost fears and insecurities. The same is true for rejection. We are so afraid of feeling because feeling precedes thought, thought precedes action, and action precedes change.
Even in the face of uncertainty, the potential for self-discovery and self-improvement is a compelling reason to endure pain, engage in confrontation, and risk rejection. Whatever it is that you feel, embrace it and give it the space it needs.
