They said that some lessons in life are best learned through pain. Through pain, we grow and become a strong and better person. My dear friends and fellow mylotters, do you believe on this? What do you think is the importance of experiencing pains in our life?

I agree with you.Pain makes us stronger,but it does not all the time.Sometimes it just makes us numb,and sometimes it breaks us apart when the pain is tremendous. When we are hurt we avoid doing the things we did that hurt us again so we really learn by that.Sometimes because we have been hurt we are no more afraid to be hurt again because we have known how it felt,and we are ready to suffer that pain again.That is what I call being numb because of pain.Sometimes too much pain makes us feel that we cannot really do it or we should not live anymore.That is how pain breaks us.Some people even become crazy. Pain has different effect to every people.:)

Yes, too much pain can also break us. That is why, we must fight this pain. Pain sometimes test us of how much strong we are.

life's pains and hurts are inevitable. i think all people go through this and we all have different ways to react to pain and eventually conquer the pain, the hurt and the feeling that we are unable to go on with life. we all have to go through pain and everytime we emerge from it, we are always an ounce better than we were!

Yes, we cannot avoid those pains and hurts in our life. We have no choice but to fight and overcome it. The more pain, the stronger also the person.

hi kaichoukebz, Yes, i heard of that saying too. But personally, it think pain is a reminder to not go back that path that makes us suffer. Pain would push us to move forward so that we would not feel that pain again. However, if that pain is too much and we are not strong enough to overcome it, we might just be stuck in the circle of pain and situation till we are able to stand up and walk out of it. Just my 2 cents worth.

Yes, too much pain can certainly bring us down. But, we must find ways to rise up and try to overcome it the best way that we can. Always trust in yourself and trust also in the Lord with all your heart, soul, and mind.

I think that learning is important. If you stop to see all happenings in your life you'll realize you had the chance to learn by love, that meaning the universal and unconditional love but we always turn that down. For example we could have helped and learned, and sacrificed for others, even those we don't love but to act compassionate is to love but we mostly choose not too, a few time later pain will come to teach exactly the SAME lesson and then we WILL learn. Not that God punishes us but the universe is like this, and if we don't learn by love, wait for the pain then. Happy Day and MyLotting!

Yes, learning from pain is truly important. We must first fail in order to grow. Only through pain that our strength and courage will be tested all through out.

Yes, whenever there is happiness, there will always be sadness and pains. We cannot run from it nor avoid it. We have no other choice but to face it.

I do agree on that. I have experienced pain and rough roads in life, I never imagined I will survive all those trials. It did made me stronger and better, I saw myself fighting and standing up for what I believe is right. I felt so proud of myself and happy that I have survived. Winning such difficult trials in life adds more confidence too, the next time we encounter another big problem we tend to have more confidence to face it and believes it will all end in time..

Yes, the more pain, the more experiences, the more learning we could get. Every time we surpass these pains, we stood up and shine also. We gain confidence for the pains we are experiencing.

Initially the pain seems terrible,but as we get new experiences and we endure the pain,we become better equipped to handle these difficult situations.They make us more mentally stronger.We also realize where we could have gone wrong leading to the painful situation in the first place.I feel there is no improvement without facing difficult situations.

Pain helps people appreciate the good times. There would be no measure of happiness, love, etc. without the opposites existing. Life is largely overcoming the things that come at us. In addition, ups and downs give us empathy for others' situations. Life is a journey...climb a hill to appreciate the downhill boost. :) It has always helped me to remember that whatever is happening today (good or bad) that THIS TOO SHALL PASS. In other words, don't get stuck in thinking that everything will always be super just because it is now. In turn, if things are bad realize it won't always be so. :)

As the common slogan we usually hear -"No pain no gain". If we experience pain means we are in the norms of our adaptation ability. It means we acknowledge the effects of our actions - we felt the learning process that a certain situation has brought into our life. what is crucial with "pain" is how a person manages to apply the message if brings to his or her life. Others took pain negatively while others took it constructively. As for me, pain is part of the circle of our life. Thou its too hard but we must strive to look and take it on its brighter side - just like reaching a crossroad into your life - which road to take that is for us to find out but expect the unexpected. Ergo, pain is equivalent to having faith to ourselves and to God.

Absolutely! God will never give us problems which we cannot resolve. We must always pray to him and feel always his presence. If we believe in our own capacity and if we believe in God, we will surely surpass the problems that will come on our way. Trust on the Lord and he will give you your heart's desire.

Everybody experience pain and being hurt not just once in their life. It really makes us grow and makes us stronger. I've already experience many pains in my life including love, and it made me a stronger person. I've learned so many things too including how will I correct all my mistakes why my relationship went wrong, by that I matured.

Yes, we must learn from pain. We must use this for our advancement. Pains indeed make us a strong person. Through pain we grow into a better individual.

For me its about balance, like you can never understand pain if you haven't experience happiness. In each extent of this two opposite but one thing, we will always learn something - and it's safe for me to say that both are important in the true essence of living.
