On Pain

And the subject of this Feelings Friday is…. pain.

We feel pain for a reason. To show us our limitations. To protect us from causing permanent damage. To inform us of what we are not ready for. To tell us to slow down and pay attention. To relieve us from the illusion of control. To strengthen our patience, humility, compassion.

Reminder to be patient and gentle with ourselves and our pain
