Do you remember when you were a kid where taking a bath early in the morning is such an issue? I remember before my mom would literally drag me into the bathroom and, if necessary, bathe me. Taking a bath early in the morning was an agony for me. It was too cold for me. I was six then, so don’t get the idea of me still having the same problem, hehe. My mom taught me a trick about it. According to her, only the first gush of water is the coldest. The succeeding ones are not. So the trick is to â€˜miss’ that one by pouring it behind you. Honestly? I believed it. Yes, its stupid but I can’t skip bath everyday so I just bought it. So every morning, for almost 6 years, during my bath, I pour the first bucket of water behind me.
You may find that funny but most people are still doing it when dealing with pain. Most people would just let the first gush “miss” them and hope that they will escape pain. Most of us, if not all, deny pain. Believe me, I still don’t have any idea how to deal with it, if I do “alam ko na ang sikreto ng buhay (I would know life’s secret) “. But one thing I could assure you there’s no preset way on dealing with pain. If there is then that would be the most abused drug in the world. Wrestle pain in your own little. But don’t run from it because you never can. Getting through pain in your own way is the right way.
Oftentimes, pain is the shortest way to relief.
