The Power of Pain - A Series

"Pained" ©2014 by Bruce Katlin

First In a Series On Discovering The Power and Importance of Pain

"No pain, no gain" the saying goes. I'm sure that some of us have experienced "gain" without the pain but I'm equally certain that the rewards were not as beneficial, developmental or as nourishing.

In the post that will follow, I will share with you mine and others' experiences living with pain, moving through and beyond it, the lessons learned and how it brings people together. 

Until next time, I leave with this quote by James Baldwin: 

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”
