Breaking News: I FEEL PAIN
Summary: I don't know that we give ourselves permission to feel pain - to not only be hurt but to just be able to SAY it. When we feel pain our instincts lead us to either run, fight it or even just be paralyzed because we don't know HOW to react. We often try to distance ourselves from the pain but avoiding pain shouldn't be our goal. Health24: "Pain plays an important role in the lives of humans. It presumably serves to protect us from harm by making us associate certain harmful actions with a sensation of pain. And to alert us to diseases or conditions which we may have. Pain also produces an emotional reaction, not just a physical one." NEWSFLASH: I feel pain too.
