Pain Or Gain?

What if you wrote down every event, all across your life from birth until now, that you perceived as painful, then looked for the gift of who you got to become because of what happened?

The pain turns out to be the motivating force that led to soul growth.

The woman who lives in a an abusive relationship finally leaves (not an easy step to take). She got to decide that being mistreated was not acceptable to her. She chose to step into her strength and change her passive life.

She recognized how powerful she is, that no one can take away her power without her permission. And even then no one can really take anything from you except through perception.

That formerly abused woman may eventually become a role model and teacher for other abused women. She probably helps others see how much they too deserve to be treated well.

  1. One would hope that it was the positive experiences that propelled one forward- at least as well. Or, am I the exception to that rule?

      Thanks for your comment, Roy. Did those experiences propel your life forward? Not just a feel good moment but a major life change that blasted you out of being stuck in ho hum or pain? When you look back at your life note the major changes you grew through. What sourced your momentous change?

      For very many people they see some major crisis that forced them to “do or die” basically. It may be a life threatening illness or injury, losing one’s home, losing your life’s savings or pension, etc. See what I mean?

      I would never say that all good and happy events will not change you. Please share what worked for you, how the event moved you into a new space or life style shift.

      • I would say most of what I did was building on previous successes. I tended to obviate the pain of what happened in my family home and looked for things that made things feel better- and like a moth, flew to those lights instead.
        I think I still do…

          We are saying the same thing. Our dysfunctional familes cause pain that motivates us to do things differently. Once you made that change you live in the new life style. 🙂

    Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this information. Today bloggers publish only about gossips and internet and this is actually irritating. A good web site with interesting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this web site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can’t find it.
