Pain is unavoidable
I was listening to this talk that described the difference between pain and suffering. They said we have been conditioned to equate pain with suffering, which is why we tend to avoid pain at all cost. However, there is a difference between the two. Pain is unavoidable because there are many different types of pain. When we start a workout, our muscles are sore but we get over it. Or if what to start our day with a meditation practice early in the morning, it may be a pain to wake up. We can also learn from pain.
