Joys of Pain 2018-57

I remember a TV show, movie, or book where the man was, I think, a special forces soldier who was wounded/ hurt and he said, “Pain lets you know you are alive”.  I believe this is where this came from. I think now that that was, somewhat, BS, but it has a point to it here.

Joys of Pain  2018-57

Pain is not a joy of life

but instead a joy of knowing;

 

Knowing where the hurt

is located and finding it

 

Realizing where the

mind needs fulfilling

 

Seeing where the spot

needs fixed or repaired

 

Feeling where the heart

needs comfort with care

 

But most of all, the joy of pain

allows us to know we are living.
