Pain is Information, Suffering is a Choice

Susan L. Taylor, the long-time editor of Essence magazine said “pain is information, suffering is a choice.” We all experience pain, physical and emotional – which is a natural part of life. Pain is life’s way of showing us when something isn’t right. Ask yourself “where am I hurting” and “why am I hurting.” Use the answers to heal yourself. When you don’t heal, that pain becomes suffering. By ignoring your pain, you choose to suffer.

Today, let’s be motivated to learning the lessons that our hurt and pain teach us, and choosing not to suffer from it instead. A little motivation is all we need.
