Pain is life — the sharper, the more evidence of life.
—  Charles Lamb

We all have pain in our lives.  This is not necessarily illness, but deeper emotional pain caused by our perception of failure or success.  Caused by a relationship ending.  Caused by loss.  Caused by giving up unrealistic goals.  We all experience pain.

We gain knowledge that pain broadens our base of experience and can make us stronger — or weaker.  And we are the ones who ultimately have to carry the burden and joy of our lives.

There’s more here than “pain in life.”  It’s how we learn to handle our pain, how we react to what has caused our pain, and how we have made others feel about our pain that matters the most.

I choose to be a survivor.  My experience can enrich my life.
