Pain persists when you avoid feeling it.



“Pain persists when you avoid feeling it.

Pain dissolves when you face it.

Once you truly face it, you’ll see that there is a big difference between feeling good and contentment.

Feeling good is superficial and impermanent, contentment is authentic and always available.

If you want to feel good, eat a chocolate bar.

If you want to feel contentment, feel your pain.”

Excerpt from “There Are No Others: Accepting the Reality of Aloneness”
