Distracting works, I’m sure. But only temporarily and sometimes not even that.

Dealing with (any) pain requires courage, patience and strength.

It requires us to first admit that we’re in pain (and be okay with it) and then proactively figure out solutions and make changes to manage the pain.

Trying to distract yourself from (any) pain right now is doing nothing but adding on to the intensity with which you experience it later, and that too, with a lot more self-created suffering.

What’s the point?
