Worth the pain

I was recently talking to a friend about how some pains we lovingly accept because we see it as one side of a coin, with a certain goodness on the flip side of that coin.

Someone else recently said to me that she truly believes that bad things in this world are bad. Period. Don’t try to tell her, “Oh, it’s for the best,” or whatever.

I think these two work together. The fact that sometimes we know that if we needed to choose, we’d choose the pain rather than not, doesn’t mean the pain isn’t bad.

The thing is that certain pains don’t feel as bad because we know why it’s “worth” it. And I guess that the more we can figure out why a pain is “worth” it, the happier we’ll be.
