Dealing With Our Pain

As a child, I recalled vivid memories of persons living in various communities within our society, who walked around aimlessly while talking to themselves. Such persons were treated as social pariah. I knew it was the body's way of releasing the pain that they felt, but sadly they may not have received the help they needed. No one has ever escaped the searing sensation of pain. It is a part of the beginning of conception and the ending of life. It plagues the cycle of life and has not allowed any part of our physiology to escape its brunt.

Psychologically, pain has been defined as an emotionally based extremely aversive feeling which can be experienced as torment. For those who received early intervention, it is controllable.

The origin of pain may differ, for example, it may start from a stressful environment, loss of loved ones, physical and mental injuries, but the nature is the same. It has an agonizing effect on the body. Depending on the way we treat our pain we might however, be able to heal from its effect.

Some persons immerse themselves in what they do best; their careers, hobbies, and what they do in their spare time. This preclude them from having to face the reality of the pain of disappointment, hurt, stress, and regret. Their involvement, in these activities, is therapeutic and numbs the pain. This is the pain that is epitomized in the artistic and written subjects of both artists and writers.

A writer usually unleash her pain in both figurative and literal language. Attacking the source of the pain and crying for relief. She converses with herself rather than violate her privacy by talking to a therapist. This is really a juxtaposition of the truth since her writings will be parsed by the reader. She, however, derives confidence from knowing that there is no physical confrontation between herself and the reader. Similarly, the pathos of he situation is usually captured in the stroke of the artist brush.

Attacking the source of the pain through writing is one of the most effective ways of dealing with pain that arises from stressful situations. Every word represent victory against the enemy. With time the mind is freed from the negative influences which affected you and prepares you to take the upward climb. This growth is inspirational. It is one of our greatest strength as our entire psyche responds positively resulting in the desired healing. One's journey of healing is also boosted by a healthy diet, nature walks, lots of rest and caring folks.

A healed mind will remove the need for medication, professional therapy and other clinically approved pain relievers. It is the ultimatum of pain.
