The “relationship” we have with pain is just like the relationship between cat and mice (cat being the pain). It’s something we try to avoid with all costs and no wonder because no one likes pain. Even though we try to run away from it, sometimes it touches us and what we do with that is essential for our future development (you can find here my post about pain and motivation).
For me, it’s very inspiring to hear people talking about how pain is somehow helpful for our development. There are some interesting thoughts about pain in the video below and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
It’s interesting to see that most of these people talk about pain as a driving force, as a power so it makes sense to refer to it as a fuel. As Tony Robbins says – Pain is mandatory, suffering is optional. What type of pain fuels you?

Oh boy. Oh body. Body pain fucking sucks. But I’m on a warpath baby. I’m out for revenge and rage and I will kill this bitch (I’m warring against a concept) and I’m incredibly sorry for what might happen, I don’t mean anybody any harm. But people will feel butt hurt about whatever they want anyway
People feel hurt to easy and for almost nothing because of the lack of self knowledge. Good luck with your war! 😀
I’m thinking this should be remembered in history: War of the Words! K kills god by changing the tactics of language. Gnosis? No, knowledge.
The pain of feeling like a square peg in a round hole. I’ve never “fit” anywhere…my driving force comes from trying to find a place to belong.
Are you now closer to finding that place?
I really hope so. I’ve at least started the journey..
I hear ya!
My pain is the fear of losing relationships. That drives me to become a better person so they will stay.
That makes me sad. But I understand. I’m scared of being rejected by the people I love.
It seems that relationships are very important to you. Have you ever done things you don’t want to keep certain people in your life?
Oh yeah. I’ve been a people pleaser all of my life and it’s lead me places I would rather have stayed away from.
Are you still doing it?
I only do what I want to do now-a-days. The most I do now is placate people with diplomacy.
That’s great! 😀
Thank you. 😊
I love, love, love your writing! I need to turn my pain into a strength. I’ve been working on it, but it’s so hard. I’ve been in constant physical pain for over a year and I’m just now getting used to it and trying to accept it as such. I love your point of view on it. So glad you followed my blog which brought me to yours.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for following back! What physical pain do you feel?
Fractured heel and osteoarthritis…still healing a year later. Ugh.
That sounds painful…
It has been which is why I loved your post. I need to turn my thinking around. It’s hard to do.
It’s hard, but not impossible. Based on the amount of pain you’ve encountered, just imagine how strong you are and strong you’ll be. The bigger the pain, the stronger you get.
Very true! Thanks for the encouragement.
