Does Your Pain Have a Purpose?

 

Hard to believe that our pain actually could have a purpose? But, hold that thought…

This time 2 years ago, I was just days away from a car accident which would have a dramatic effect on my life in terms of both physical and emotional pain. Thankfully, I was not seriously injured in the sense that I walked away from the crash. Nobody else was hurt. I honestly thought with a day or two of rest that things would be back to normal.

We rely on the same medication because the doctor says that is what we should be taking. We accept what they say because, after all, they are the “expert”.

Yep, our comfort zone is certainly safe and comfortable but it is also a place where nothing grows. No hopes, no spark, no incentives and no change. Over time, left in our comfort zone we will basically stagnate!
