Pain as a compass.

Interview with a schizophrenic - Apple/ Spotify
Many years ago I used to be in some sort of mental and emotional pain.

I recall thinking that life is pain.

Then I had the idea of using it as a compass.

I went in the life direction of less pain and kept going.

I think this is a good thing to do if you are struggling in life.

I think if you run from the pain in your soul
then you will become stuck

the one thing that we should know, is life will always remain there, there before us. If we take time out to know the true means of this. We are developing coping skills to combat pain...within our understanding..

the life direction of less pain
I guess we all wanna go that way. If we could figure out which way that is. There's a saying about taking the path of least resistance too.. not sure that means avoiding pain though it may seem like it in the short term
