Pain is a part of life. Sometimes it’s a big part and sometimes it isn’t but either way it’s a part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game. Pain does two things: it teaches you, tells you that you’re alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed. It leaves you wiser and stronger than you were before. Pain makes its mark and is inevitable to resist in this lifetime. Life will dish it in one degree or another, it’s up to you to learn from it’s lesson and grow.
