Are you asking what type of pain?
The short answer is any pain. I say that because most people have aches and pains in life. We have people that insulted us. We have physical ailments that are causing us issues. We have people in our lives that are causing us pain.
Sadly at times people try to numb their ‘pain’ through different methods such as drugs, alcohol, or other types of risky behavior.
I’ve found due to my own situations it is better to work through the pain. What do I mean by that? It is to go to the root cause as to why there is the pain. Let me give you a few examples;
- We have people that insulted us. So what do we do? We just need to realize that the people that are insulting us are usually people who feel very insecure and are crying out something like; “Please notice me, I need to be significant.” Give them your attention and move on. Don’t fall into their trap!
- We have physical ailments that are causing us issues. So what do you do? Understand that you are not alone in your pain, as many people are suffering from many ailments, but are not complaining. So seek medical help if you don’t have it already. But please remember complaining about it in public will not change the pain at all.
- We have people in our lives that are causing us pain. What do I mean by that? It could be in the form of some sort of physical or mental abuse to you or those close to you. So what do you do? You need to decide on your own what is most important in your life? When you’ve decided on this take action that makes you feel whole again.
Can you see how working through your pain, can make more sense than trying to numb it?
