Living with Pain

What if everyday you woke up with terrible pain? What if it took you a scolding hot shower just to get mobile? What would you do if you had to keep moving to keep the pain down? What if the drugs recommended by doctors would kill your gut and immune system? What if you are an athlete and could never let the pain show? What if you’re a parent? What if people depended on you being strong?

What would happen if people knew there was a chink in your armor? How would they see you? What would they say? Why do you need to be strong all the time? Why do you need to hide the pain? What if you knew that nothing lasted forever-including pain? How would you act? What would you do?  What if you knew that you are the cause of the pain? What would you eat? What would you do?

What if you needed pain in your life to make you grow? What if you are really a superhero? What if even Superman and Thor are not invincible? What if they felt pain just like you? What if you could ask them what to do? What would they say? What would you do differently? What would you do differently if you knew those whom depended on you could know what pain you were in? What if pain isn’t always physical? What if it’s part of the human experience? What if we need pain in our lives?

What if life was about the struggle with pain? What if it’s part of the game? How will you win?
