“The only source of knowledge is experience” – Albert Einstein
Have you ever reflected on the difference between Pain and Suffer? Pain is part of life. It is a fact and it is not optional. Suffering on the other hand, is totally optional; we have the ability to control it. I believe that we, as women, understand that there is learning and growth in every experience that we go through. Growing can be painful. Some experiences are painful too; like losing a loved one or hearth each. Yet, although the pain is inevitable and creates a “hole” in our heart; we have the option to fill it with two different types of emotions.
- Love, compassion, acceptance, sadness, growth and understanding
- Anger; frustration; deception; revenge and resistance.
The first group of emotions makes us grow and evolve as persons while the second makes us suffer. Choose wisely……I know you will.
