WOW! what a powerful sentence. After all these years I would have to agree. Would you? Has all the pain you've ever felt healed or would you say you've just learned to live with it?
I've come to believe during my journey that some pain never heals...some just sticks around...but...I also believe we can learn to live with it...that in spite of our pain...we can continue and we can move forward.
We can't stop nor even change the pain that comes with life...but we can learn to change how we respond to it. It's not easy and I won't lie to you...it's hard sometimes. The pain of loss hurts and we can often get stuck in it, and we can often keep ourselves here by the thoughts we entertain too.
We are living with something we cannot change, and we are living with something that most likely won't heal...but does that mean our lives end? NO! it doesn't. Our pain may not heal but we can't stop living either. Sometimes...we just have to learn how to live with it.
So...how are you living with your pain? Do you take the time to soothe you when you need? Do you still do things that make you feel good to be you? Things that make you smile? Do you still have dreams and are you still going after them? Are you as active in your life as you can possibly be? How are you living with your pain? and if you decide you're not living....what are you going to do about it?
take good care of you eh?
