What a thought boom that is. Would you agree with it?
Are you responsible for your behaviour when your pain has taken your voice? Have you ever lashed out at someone because you're body is hurting? What about when your pain has your patience? What's your behaviour like then?
How you behave is your responsibility. No matter what someone else may say or do...you are responsible for how you respond and behave.
We cannot control that we feel pain but we can learn how to control what we do when feeling it. That is up to us. There are days when it's easier and days when you feel so out of control because you're hurting so much. But no matter what...just because your pain is understandable...it does not excuse your behaviour. You own that and you are responsible.
Give some thought to your behaviours when you're feeling your pain...whether it's physical, emotional or the mental kind...give it some thought okay? And ask yourself...have you always behaved the best? Do you use your pain as an excuse for your own behaviour? Do you owe someone an apology? What can you do to cope with and manage your feelings and emotions better the next time your pain has your voice?
Our pain is understandable but it's not an excuse to behave poorly.
