100 Words on Enjoy Your Pain
"Enjoy your pain," my Hungarian physical therapist says. "You have to face the pain and deal with it."
" I use distraction as my coping mechanism so I can focus on other things besides my pain," I reply.
"You can't deny it. You have to relish it."
"I don't think denial and distraction are the same," I say to myself.
So I ponder what "enjoy your pain" means.
I Google it and find:
~~ people who self-mutilate (not me)
~~ people who are sadomasochists (not me)
~~ lots of articles that say, "treat your pain and enjoy life!" (hasn't happened)
