I asked my therapist, “What if I tell myself that it is okay if someone responded in a bad manner? They might as well be suffering, right?”
Of course, it is a good thing to run a marathon.
But the best runners, train themselves before the event.
However, if you go haven’t trained yourself at all and you get up one day and go run, can you imagine what all pain will you endure?
And now imagine how long have you been running this marathon!
So the way to be actually able to run that marathon is to train our brain, to understand our emotions first, and why we feel in the pain.
Otherwise, it is only a continuous run of pain, not a marathon in reality.
Something really deep to reflect upon.
