Are you in pain?

Pain that is not processed usually keeps away peace. The more we ignore it or send it to the back of our minds and delay in addressing it, it becomes more profound. Yes, it takes a lot of courage to look at our pain and make sense of it in the light of our current reality but it is essential for our well-being and sometimes for the well-being of others.

So, one of the ways to do it is to take time to feel the pain and its roots. What originally caused it and what all (experiences, people, words) made it worse. Then try to find out how much of it is still relevant in our current lives. Remember a lot has changed from then till now. Those things that are not relevant anymore bury them with the flowers of forgiveness.

Some painful memories remain relevant for the rest of our lives and we must accept them as part of our lives in a decorative way. We can let them hang on the walls of our hearts like merit certificates because those experiences made us stronger and more mature persons. Look at them with a smile and know that we survived them. When smiling is not possible and tears find their way, let them flow.

Let me tell you a secret (known to all, applied by few) concoction of tears and forgiveness has a divine capacity to heal any soul. Try it :-)

Pain ignored is more painful but pain addressed is new life...

    Because addressing pain teaches us to handle the pain with peace and many a times it gives also the solution of pain.

    Nice thought provoking post.
