On our journey through life we all encounter periods of pain. Sometimes this pain is physical, sometimes it is emotional, but in either case it’s very important to have a strategy for dealing with painful circumstances.

If you are dealing with a painful situation at the moment, I’d like to share with you a quote:

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”


When we are faced with pain we each have a choice to make. We can quit and accept our circumstances, or we can make the decision to fight with all the resources we have at our disposal.

I’d like to encourage you to draw on the support of those who love you and adopt the view that your pain is temporary.

When you adopt this perspective, you will start to turn your focus towards the future and begin to look beyond your current pain.
