Pain can make you down right grouchy even if you don’t want it that way. There is physical and mental pain, they both can change people.
It can take an upbeat, positive, outgoing sunny disposition and turn it into a sober, anxious, depressed, doubt-riddled, person with a grim outlook on life. It’s depressing, and if your not aware of what’s happening to you because of the pain, then you may not recognize that reflection in the mirror. Your friends won’t either. ~ Cathy Sors
Pain humbles people too, but it is up to us as to whether it changes us for the better or for the worse.
Pain, unlike pleasure, wears no mask. Behind every sorrow, there is always sorrow. No pain, no gain is so very apart. “To render ourselves insensible to pain, we must also forfeit the possibility of happiness.” One hasn’t lived without having experienced and endured pain in all its many shapes and forms. Life is never without its fair share of pain. We just learn to accept it as our fair due and live with it in pretty much the same way that we enjoy the simple pleasures of life. One balances the other. Life’s a happy medium. The extremes doesn’t bear thinking of a happy balance is what life offers. You just take the good with the bad as is the case with everything else in life. Grin and bear it is what life’s all about. ~ Margaret Young
Pain shows us a different perspective. The deeper your cut the deeper down the rabbit hole you can go. That gained perspective damages but it also creates a newer empathy for other people than we were capable of having before which is enlightening and sometimes life changing. ~ Dan Brown
Pain does change a person more than you could ever imagine. When you have chronic pain it is hard to find the positives in life but you have too to be able to continue one. ~ Julie Bloodworth
