Pain hurts. It can get to the stage where we want to throw the towel in and say “That’s it! I have had enough! I can’t do this anymore!” I know, I have done it. I have said it. I have given up. Then I saw a specialist who told me something that turned me around.
When you are in pain, whether physical, mental or emotional, then everything you do hurts. You don’t want to walk, because it hurts. You don’t want to speak to people, it hurts, you don’t want to think because it hurts. You can get through it though. After my back injury, I gave up. I was broken. I could not walk properly so I was no longer a proper man. I couldn’t play with my kids, I couldn’t do anything. I was in pain in every sense of the of the word. My specialist told me that this could be turned around. I had a choice. Stand up and fight, or end up in a wheelchair by the time I was 35. I am now 46 and still not in a wheelchair. I know I will be eventually, but I will fight it. You can as well. Fight through the pain to the other side. You will be amazed by the view. If you give up, you will never see what it looks like. It won’t be easy, and it may take time, but you can do it. You have the power within you to do it. You are your own superhero.
