6. When you’re ready, take the time to understand the source of your pain
Take the time to talk through the source of your pain with a trusted friend or counselor.
I recommend a professional as your friends can only do so much.
This is an essential part of the healing journey and for making sure that the reason for your suffering doesn’t happen again – that is, if it’s something that you want to avoid.
There are some causes of pain that are not to be avoided. For example, suffering for the sake of righteousness.
