    Wisdom....

    I think that is one of the greatest things a person can learn. Pain can be a good thing or a terrible thing.On one side, it can destroy us if we let it, but on the other hand it can be something that helps us grow. I think you can look at pain from two different view points...

    Crying ?

    Pain and trials are only submitted to us in order to watch how our patience could be tested. If at first proof we begin to cry, no need to explain how the proof is lost. Better to have a bit set-back, a bit meditation and see the proof just as a schoolwork ! Best way to win in...
