Today I want to share about something that is very dear to me: Pain. I sustained a pretty serious injury in 2013 which altered the course of my life in ways I could not have anticipated. It was at this point that the experience of profound physical pain entered my life and seemed to set up camp as a permanent resident. It was a demoralizing and deeply discouraging time.
It was a slow climb out of that dark pit of physical pain. I slowly began physical therapy and other body work in order to try to heal. What I didn’t realize at the time was, I wasn’t interested in healing: I was interested in “fixing”. I would “fix” my pain. I would “fix” my body and then it wouldn’t be a problem anymore.
