Summary

As harsh as it sounds, the pain you go through is necessary. Without it, you probably wouldn’t be who you are. You wouldn’t know what you know. 

We grow in life when we become inquisitive and introspective lifelong learners. Some of the best life lessons you will learn are those that come from your pain. 

“We do not learn from experience… we learn from reflecting on experience.” – John Dewey

Key Takeaways To Tune In For

  • In the middle of a painful moment, take the time to feel it. Take time to process it. 
  • Focus on things that will help in the long run, not things that will make you feel good in the moment.
  • Once you let out all of your emotions after a painful moment, the next step is to try to reflect on the experience: What went wrong? What part did you have to play? What did you learn?  How will you do things differently next time? 
  • The purpose of reflecting on your experience is not to talk about how others caused you pain, the purpose is to reflect about your role.  You cannot control other people, but you can control yourself. It is all about what you can do differently to get the life you want.

 

My question to YOU: 

What is your pain calling you to do? 

How can you help others who are going through what you went through?
