Many people think the pain they experience is some form of punishment or that they must have done something wrong to be in such a sad situation. However, emotional pain isn’t a form of punishment or something we’ve unintentionally attracted into our lives, it’s there to help us learn. The emotional pain that we feel when someone breaks our heart or disappoints us is simply the physical bodies acknowledgement of unexpected change in progress. Even though emotional pain feels like torture, it is actually a sign that something progressive is underway. Pain signifies that we are undergoing advanced spiritual evolution and growth is taking place. Just as the saying goes, “no pain, no gain”. So the next time you’re feeling the heartache of emotional pain, try to look at things from a different perspective and think about what it is that you can gain from your pain. Once we learn and understand the reason for its presence, it is no longer needed and goes away. When we are in pain, we are in learning, we are in healing, we are in the process of evolution.
