IS HURT REALLY AN INVITATION TO GROW??
“You cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs” it is so true, but does the same principle apply even to us??? Is it that the best in us will come out when we are subjected to hurt and ill treatment? Well this is my question of concern and want to know better about it.
According to me, hurt is going to hamper one’s confidence in doing any task! Come on, why do you have to undergo hurt or ill treatment either physically or mentally to achieve anything at all is what I feel! If i have to get hurt by chance on my way of doing what I am dogged to do, I have to face it! But on the other hand, if I have to get hurt by choice, I definitely don’t want to choose it. I want to know how many of you all want to choose it???
When I was in my teens and was swimming for state, I had a friend of mine, whose dad used to hit her just because she would not give her best timings in the competition, and after every episode of hitting, she would give her best. Is it worth the hitting?? Why do u have to get hurt in order to achieve your timings. If one can, one will be doing it, why do they have to be treated like an animal is what I want to ask?? This might be a small example but still I wanted to quote! Cant u really achieve anything at all in life without being hurt and exposed to ill treatment??
I am really not impressed with the idea of “pain is gain?? For what joy?? May be this principle, will bring fruits to some,"each to their own" though! And if I must say I may not achieve anything big at all, its my problem thoroughly! I believe in “where there is a will there is a way”. If I am determined to do something I should be able to, I must not and do not want to invite hurt on my way! Well this doesn’t mean I will have or rather have an easy path to achieve the goal!
I think, things can be done and achieved when told in a genteel and an appropriate manner. This is a knack by itself I guess. Patience, plays its key role to this I suppose! It lies in what is told and in what manner it is told! Why would one not try giving their best when told in a sauve and congenial manner. Why is this wrong idea about-“pain is gain in the bargain” concept I really do not understand! I am not saying everything in life can be achieved easily and in a smooth manner! What I am asking is- is it necessary to invite hurt to grow??
Your achievement depends totally on your capabilities, does’nt it?? Do you have to undergo mental and physical turmoil to achieve big??? I am even for a second not saying that bonafides are a humbug! Definitely not! But why do you have to walk on a tight rope all the time to reach the other side of the shore when u have a path meant to reach that shore peacefully, even if it is going to take a little longer by distance and time! Whether you can reach the shore or not depends on your ability totally! Why unnecessarily tax your mental and physical strengths to achieve! If one says “Take the hurt and hardships with a smiling face” how is it possible, I mean all the time??
Finally if Hurt must and should be an invitation and an ingredient of Growth, then how do you handle that hurt please tell me???
