With Pain Comes Great Strength

We all fear pain. Pain comes in many forms and sometimes threatens to overwhelm our emotions and/or our bodies. Sometimes we mask it and find ways to make ourselves numb si that we can no long feel it’s affects. But this does nothing more that create further harm, further hurt. And further grief. We have to stop masking the pain and allow ourselves to feel, and begin to find strength. Pain can be a gift if we truly allow ourselves to feel it, to embrace it. I know this sounds crazy. I masked my pain with medicine that my doctors we’re oh so ready to oblige in. I was on pain medicine and anxiety pills for years and years. That only led me to more problems.

Rejoice in the pain, for you are finally strong enough to feel again.

I’m sure all of you have heard the phrase: When you hit rock bottom everything will change. The truth is that when some people hit rock bottom and just can’t take anymore they will turn to suicide which is very sad, when people think this is the only way out. It’s not. We all have the choice the change. Change our attitudes, or thoughts, of change lives.

I always tell people that come to me telling me what they have been thinking: there is no rule in life’s handbook saying you can’t change your thoughts. If you don’t like what your thinking change it to something better. Don’t sit and dwell on your negative thoughts.

In my struggles during my life, I have tried to commit suicide many times but then remembered what I was leaving behind, my father was my only strength in my life. I would often tell him, ’I can do this anymore’ he would tell me you can’t die because what would I do without you. We would try to convince me, but give me a reason to stick around a little longer. While my husband would tell me what would the kids do without, I couldn’t raise them on my own. There is always a reason to not commit suicide. And not many reasons too, change your thoughts.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.


I all think of the quote just when I get frustrated and want to quit. I tell myself I’m not going to let satan win. And I push through it.

If you have a disease yes, take care of yourself, take the medicine the doctor prescribed. Take care of yourself. Eat well, exercise when and how you can. But don’t let them give you an expiration date. Only God can bring you into this world and out of this world.

When I was diagnosed with cancer the doctor told me in one year I would be dead. Yes, of course I was upset for a few day. Then I decided I was not excepting his time for my death. I was not going to let satan win, not this time or ever.

Have the strength to change your thoughts, and decide to live a better life than ever before. When your only goal is to be a better person today than you were yesterday. Things begin to be better. You don’t have to prove yourself to anyone.

I so hope these things I write are an inspiration to you. May God bless you everyone.
