I 100% agree with you. Although you grow from experience and every emotion that comes with it, I feel as if you learn more from ones that weren't positive. You learn a lesson from something you should not have done and you grow stronger from grief. You tend to appreciate the little things in life whether they be negative or positive. If you constantly just seek pleasure, then of course you will only yearn for more of that. Learn delayed gratification and receive something good in the end.

No, I think you grow when you understand the structure of the action / reaction. You then design the system to work where you have more of the glee and less of the pain. <br />

While it is true that pain motivates a change in behavior, that pain with unplanned change, will only continue as long as you do not understand the actions that cause the reactions. And with out that understanding, you are still simply trying on shoes with the wrong fit. You might get lucky eventually and find some with a less painful pinch, but until you understand the nature of the shoe and your habits of movement within the shoes, they will always cause pain. <br />

Pleasure will cause you to stop changing, but it still may not be anymore enlightening. True growth only comes from understanding.<br />

just my opinion though
