AVOIDING PAIN…

IS A SELFISH ACT, right or wrong???  WOW!!!  What prompted “THIS” discussion? HA!!!  You get one (1) guess, folks!!!  Yep… I AM STRUGGLING YET AGAIN!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  Have I mentioned that “LIFE”… can be “DIFFICULT”… sometimes???  Oh, alright…“LIFE”… IS “DIFFICULT”…MOST OF THE TIME!!!

A co-worker reminded me of a gold-nugget, tid-bit of info. today as I began feeling sorry for myself… AGAIN!!!  Thank-you, Cath!!!  By changing a few word choices, I came to realize that avoiding potentially painful situations can or may be viewed negatively.  BAM!!!  But wait… I already KNEW that, didn’t I???  “Suffering is good” has been discussed in a few different blog posts.  It appears, however, that I DID NOT translate “THIS” (suffering is good) to also mean that AVOIDING pain or suffering may, like-wise, be bad or selfish.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!   

Oh bother, think.  Think.  THINK… my head hurts, folks!!!  Time for bed!!!

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!  AMEN.
