Say if you are tortoise that grows a shell. That shell can take a lot of battering and save the tortoise from pain. So by that analogy you are right
no thats not what I meant at all Burt

suppose you enrol for the army and do the training

in fact some of the painful things will no longer cause you to suffer

the same can be true of emotional growth
