“We don’t so much solve our problems as we outgrow them. We add capacities and experiences that eventually make us bigger than the problems.” ~ Carl Jung

Pain is a tricky concept. At minimum, it’s a double-edged sword. And both sides are sharp as hell. One side can make us stronger and sharper, if we let it. The other side could destroy us or kill us, if we’re not careful.

Pain is a multilayered beast that we all must grapple with from time to time. It comes in many flavors of ache and angst, emotional and physical, psychological and existential. For the purposes of this article, we’ll be going into pain as fuel for the fire of a life well lived.
