Do you remember, when you were a kid, dreading even the smallest amount of pain? Whether it was taking off a bandage or getting your blood drawn at the doctor’s office, there was such a huge fear of pain that you would do just about anything to not feel it? As you grew up, and experienced more pain, both in the body and in the heart, you became accustomed to it or unafraid of it because you understood it better.
It never meant that you did not feel pain, but it meant that you knew the proper context of the pain with regard to the surrounding circumstances.
When you entered the business world, you saw that some people were fired and experienced a great deal of pain until they were suitably (and for some time) settled in their new job. You saw that some people experienced the pain of being correct, quite publicly, by their bosses for misbehaving or for screwing up a client account in some manner. You experienced pain yourself when these things and other similar situations happened to you during your employment.
However, some people avoid pain, even as adults. They run from it, scared, and they do not wish to look upon it. Some people look upon pain and see only what they are afraid of and never the solution on the other side of the pain. And they avoid pain by abusing drugs or alcohol, sometimes even while at work.
It is better to feel the pain, and it get out of your system for good, than to allow it to fester within you until it has overcome you in every way.
