All of us were brought to this world by a necessary pain – childbirth. For it was not for this divine maternal act, we would not make it.
On the other hand, the universe could have made a big joke and have us replicate by cell splitting. Who knows? But that is not exactly our point.
By the process that brought us here, this should have send the message that our lives will be full of necessary pains. After birth, our pains just began.
As babies, we cried in order to be fed and changed. We felt pain in order to be gratified.
Going to school was painful. Toiling through each lesson, painstakingly answering each assignments, deadlines for reports, field practices, all of which had some impact on our future as citizens. Many of us made it and others did not. It did not stop there.
Our lives are full of painful decisions. Living away from family to pursue a career or stay out the comforts of our homes to experience a chance of the lifetime. Those pains have something gratifying after. But we had to weigh their options.
Why do we have to go through them?
It is the balance that we need in order to be humans. As ironic as it is but, our lives will depend on the pain we choose.
In order to make it to our destination, it is just part of our lives to go through them. Growing through necessary pains is just part of our nature.
