Many of us try to avoid the pain that comes along with making big changes in our lives, like quitting an addiction, training for a marathon, dealing with relationship conflict.
I am going to present what I think are ten positive sides to pain so that maybe you'll become more accepting of it and even seek it out in some forms for your personal growth. Obviously, these are all generalizations. If pain is handled poorly, or if you are abused, or exposed to traumatic violence, that is NOT good.
