It is said that pain in life is mostly optional, and that's true. Much of the pain that we experience in our lives is self-created. It's our own perception of things that usually gets us into trouble, not the actual circumstance or event. That's not to say that people don't experience major trauma in their lives, because they do, it's only that many of our day-to-day experiences create unnecessary pain. That's what we're here to talk about, the unnecessary pain we put ourselves through in order to learn or understand something.
