Always remember that Jesus himself went through pain. He had been where you are and been through more pain than you could endure, ten times over. You Your never alone in this journey. I know it’s not easy and you want to give up but you must keep going. As long as you are waken up or maybe you never went to sleep, as long as you still have breath inside you; you must keep going. Your pain is not the end, your pain is an eye opener.
Like Paul some of us are reminded every day that we are in constant pain and some of us can find the positive outlook on it, while others see it has a curse/touture.
Mentally you must be strong, even when your body is weak, fore when the body is weak so can it trigger negative thoughts that cause you to fall right into all the discomforts in life.
You must Find Your Comfort in the pain. Don’t just live with it and accept it, you must continue to find the root of it all. Is your pain as is the thorn in Paul? Are you accepting it to better yourself? Or have you accepted that your life was meant to be full of pain?
Better yourself, your life, the smallest to the largest of things that need working on. This is the time to face truths that you’ve been lying to yourself about for years. What is God trying to change about you? Or in you/your life?
Find Your Comfort… if it’s in your pajamas, then you proudly wear them and don’t feel guilty or worry about what others think. You have to think of yourself now. You are the one enduring the pain, not them. True friends and family that truly love you, will be right by your side and won’t judge you. Anyone who looks down on you, is not for you. Keep people around that allow you to feel peace, happiness and tranquility.
Most importantly have people around you that motivate you to be a better you. Remember that you won’t see a difference unless you try. The pain may be there always, so if you’re going to hurt anyways, you might as well do what you enjoy. At least then you have a reason to why you’re in pain. Find Your Comfort.

“The life of inner peace,
being harmonious and without stress,
is the easiest type of existence.”
– Norman Vincent Peale
If only we could get to the point of existing in life with no stress, now that would be great. Yes that would be wonderful to get to that point, and I am surly working on that. I have been getting much closer to having inner peace, I’ve been feeling much peaceful lately, and it’s such a good feeling. Also I haven’t been stressing myself out about going to the gym, but making sure I rise and shine, get a moment with God and then start my day by making sure I’m moving around. I HAVE NOT HAD AS MUCH PAIN LATELY, I know its kind of hard to believe but the more positive I become in my thoughts, the more better my body feels and I’m moving much easier. Now the cold weather still makes my legs ache and feel weak if they become to cold, but nevertheless I am much better than I was last year and I am so thankful.
Now I have a long way to go before I fully have inner peace in my heart, but every little bit counts for something. Taking one day at a time, minute by minute I am relieving my stress easier and easier every day.
“Choose Inner Peace.
Nothing is worth losing your inner peace.
Take action as circumstances require,
but never surrender your inner peace.
Stop. Breathe deeply.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply again.
Then, and only then, take action –
from a peaceful heart.”
– Jonathan Lockwood
“The key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions
such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness.”
– Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama
