Another way to look at Pain

“What if pain—like love—is just a place brave people visit? Maybe instead of slamming the door on pain, I need to throw open the door wide and say, Come in. Sit down with me. And don't leave until you have taught me what I need to know.”

“Pain transforms one woman into two so that she has someone to walk with, someone to sit with her in the dark when everyone else leaves.”

“I’m trying to fix my pain with certainty, as if I’m one right choice away from relief. I’m stuck in anxiety quicksand: The harder I try to climb my way out, the lower I sink. The only way to survive is to make no sudden movements, to get comfortable with discomfort, and to find peace without answers.”

"My courage will come from knowing I can handle whatever I encounter there -- because I was designed by my creator to not only survive pain and love but also to become whole inside it. I was born to do this. I am a Warrior.”

Culminating in:

“If I want to know: Is there anyone on earth who won’t betray me? I must answer myself: Yes. Look in the mirror. She won’t betray you.”

― Glennon Doyle Melton, Love Warrior

Carry On, Warriors!

The more you can accept yourself the more you can accept others.

This is the first step towards more healthy meaningful relationships with others as well as with yourself.
