None of us enjoy pain. It adds to the challenges we already experience by adding both physical and emotional stress. The typical response to pain is to open a bottle and pop a pill (or two), washing it down with whatever liquid is at hand. What would happen if we viewed pain from a different perspective?
Since our goal is usually to stop the pain, popping a pill can succeed … for the time being. What about identifying the root cause of the pain? If the pain returns and you need to repeat the process daily or multiple times a day, you may actually be adding fuel to the fire in your body.
