Sometimes I wonder if it would be ever possible to go back in time and rewrite history. As much as I would like to say I wouldn’t want to do it, there’s just too much that had happened which caused me so much pain I wished I could just forget how to feel anything.
But as I said when I was in that moment, everything will soon pass. There’s this question I always ask myself whenever I feel I’m on the verge of breaking down and it seems helpful because it’s a known fact especially from my standpoint now.
“Will this matter after (insert a certain period of time here)?”
At that instant, you might answer that it will and it would still hurt but do believe me, it wouldn’t. Pain is something that the mind and body concocts to defend us from serious injury. It is like an alarm system built into us.
So what do we have to do then whenever we feel pain? Just like the pain that love causes us, we need to cope with it. Learn to accept facts and let things go. If pain is the result of the connivance of the mind and body, then we should start dealing with our mind first to remedy or even prevent pain.
Mind over matter. I usually say afterwards, “if you wouldn’t mind then it wouldn’t matter” which is generally true. Shrug that off, and as long as you don’t put deep thought into it, it will just pass through your consciousness and you could still go on with your life.
That is combating the bad side of pain.
On the other hand, pain caused me to write all of these and made me the person I am now. So I guess, it would be okay to feel pain after all, but it’s generally good to know how to remedy it if you would happen to need it, right?
