I was inspired to suggest this topic for this week’s 2 on 1 blog post by a statement that I blogged about in my post Book Review – Mark Manson.
“The only way to overcome pain is to first learn how to bear it.”
Like everyone else, I have had my share of both physical and mental pain. Some major and many more minor ones. In fact, as I write this, I am in some discomfort due to a pulled muscle which is quite painful. I however am blessed with a stoic nature and all my life have been able to bear pain of both kinds and eventually overcome it. And it is also very true that every time something painful happened, I changed. I think, for the better.
And that is all I have to say on the matter. Please go over to Shackman’s blog to see what he has to say on the same subject.
