Play With Pain…

Pain is an inevitable and unpredictable part of our lives, impacts who we are or the way we interact with the world. It’s important we acknowledge, express, process and release it, in a timely manner.

We need to identify the root cause of our pain and take action to heal. Treating superficial symptoms or finding solace in temporary comforts, doesn’t help. By focusing on deep rooted underlying causes, we can manage pain healthily, gain balance, clarity and control over any grief or sadness.

The very thought of needing to analyse our emotions leads to resistance in most of us, especially if, on the surface, our lives seem to be in good order. It’s difficult to make the effort to dig and dive intonour pain, even though we are seriously inconvenienced by the hurt.

If we carry the burden of unprocessed pain, sooner or later, it creates immense discomfort, sorrow and regret. Being proactive, lowers our suffering, frees up negative energy or feelings tied up in numbing or refusing to endure the pain, just releasing and letting go. We hold on tightly to pain, as a way of self protection.

The first step is to honestly recognise, embrace and honour our pain, no brushing it under the carpet or pretending all is well. We will then, understand it’s origins or value.

It might be fear of abandonment, childhood abuse, anger at being mistreated, loss of a loved one or other deeper wounds. As we sensitively and patiently manage pain, we need to be compassionate and nurture ourselves, with love, understanding and care.
Jump deep into our darkest chambers to identify, feel, heal and learn. It’s never a good idea to block pain, reject it exists or find momentary pleasures, as it turns very toxic.
Ultimately, how we choose to face our pain, manage and live, defines who we are.
All of us express pain differently, a still silence, eyes and smile, reveals it all…
