How to Find Strength Through Pain
Life is a rollercoaster. A continuous ride of which there are many ups and downs. At life’s lowest point are pain, suffering, and turmoil. But, at its highest point, life is defined by change, growth, and happiness.
Our emotional selves ache at our lowest points. We harness our emotions, which at times, succumbs to many forms of depression, anxiety, and stress.
Life lesson: we are not our emotions.
Our emotions are separate from the definition of who we are. Thus, don’t allow your emotions to define who you are. You have the option to either let them in and harness them, or to recognize them as they are. The latter is the better choice. Because in the end,…you’ll never suffer from letting your emotions get the best of you.
“You can try and numb the pain but it will never go away” Kid Cudi.
Pain is a part of the process.
Pain is the cousin to struggle. I tend to struggle with pain. It is as if one was paralyzed by the fear that the resurgence of the pain is somewhat inevitable.
“Some people survive and talk about it. Some people survive and go silent. Some people survive and create. Everyone deals with unimaginable pain in their own way” Nikota Call.
One of the greatest talents is to be in control of your emotions. It requires mindfulness, confidence, and power among many other things. Mindfulness helps with the realization that emotion does not define you.
Ego says. ‘”Once everything falls into place, I’ll find peace”…but the spirit says “find peace and everything will fall into place.”
Emotion is energy-in-motion
Recognize its presence, and then, be present as if it is non-existent in the reality in which you lie. For that reality is as it is, with no emotion, pain, or suffering. You are being.
Empty yourself of bad energy and be accepting of good space. It may be uncomfortable at first but no change is ever easy.
Be mindful of the thoughts you water your dreams with. Water your dreams with optimism, love and determination. Put aside your worry and fear.
Confidence is grown out of self-awareness. When you start to believe that you have the ability to overcome any circumstance, no matter how much pain. To be confident isn’t to be boastful or brash, it is quite the opposite. A confident person is true to themselves, they work on themselves and do them.
They have built up an immunity to the people who come in and out of their lives that bring suffering and hurt with them. Confidence is a character trait that gives you the power to overcome pain.
Then there is power, which is the consequence of being mindfully confident. Power is derivative to the fact that if you are powerful, and believe it, whatever suffering you are going through is only temporary. It too will past, as you are powerful enough to let it come and go.
At the end of the day, we’ve all felt pain before. It sucks and is a horrible feeling. It’s almost indescribable as I try to define and box it in as I type this post. But , it’s the fact that that the same pain is still deep inside all us. This in effect, brings about issues of trust, genuineness, and faith in the goodness of people.
That people are genuine in nature, that they care for other people, and that any time they harm someone else they are empathetic to realize the pain that they have caused. But, maybe all of that is a façade.
Learn from life’s lessons.
Certain events, conflicts, and periods of struggle that occur in life are usually there to teach us a lesson. A lesson that in the moment may seem vague, yet, in the end, it all ends up making sense and you internalize that lesson, either good or bad.
You control your own destiny, the captain of your ship. Be more present; continue to work on yourself, and get in touch with your spiritual self. By doing so, you will let your own energy resonate within the universe and whatever vibrations you attract will enter into your reality.
Your reality is a reflection of your state of being. It is often hard but in all circumstances, even when we are at our lowest points. Even when we obtain from any outside contact, due to the fear of pain. We must continue to be positive and let our light shine through the darkness.
“Eventually all the pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason”
Letting whatever emotion we tend to harness to be free, let it go. If you are feeling down, get up!
The meaning you give to something determines the effect you get out of it. This is just physics, it is what is called the third law of creation — what you put out, is what you get back.
If you are thinking about scenarios that are contradictory to your reality, don’t believe the pictures that your mind is painting. It is only that, a picture that isn’t your real life movie. If you are feeling pain, emotionally or physically, realize that it is only temporary and will make you stronger. Get back up on your feet, the world needs you.
Take care of yourself.
Be good to your body.
Feed your mind well.
Don’t limit your reach.
Live for you.
Then, you’ll realize how far you’ve come. You’ll remember when you thought things were such a mess that they’d never recover. Then you’ll smile. You smile because you are proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become.
