“You can’t control pain from what life
throws at you, but you can decide whether
it’s going to make you bitter or better.
Choose the latter and ask God what he
wants you to learn from the situation. Do
this and you will emerge stronger, just like
diamonds after going through fire.”

— Moji Delano


I wrote the above about learning through
pain on Twitter this morning, and was
inspired to expatiate more on what I
meant. I mean, there’s so much a person
can say with just 280 characters!

What I tried to concisely express is that
the obstacle is always the way; A way to
strength and development.
If we look
deeply at our issues, and cultivate the
habit of detachment from emotions and
analysing situations objectively, we will
be able grasp a clearer picture from a
somewhat arial view.

What this helps us do is see things clearly.

It helps us to understand that there is a
lesson (or more) to learn in every
situation, one that if are too carried away
by our emotions, we are likely to miss.

It’s not easy, I know. Because most times
when life challenges us we are so shaken
that we completely forget to look at the
alternate perspective. Alternate
perspective being the good side of the
situation i.e what we could learn from the
experience.

Contrary to what our mind makes us
think, no situation, no matter how dire is
bad altogether.
We just have to develop the
mental strength to think and sieve through
all the negative our mind tells us to focus
on and look at things rationally through
careful, constructive thinking.

“Sometimes, even scars
are beautiful.”


The ability to learn and know that every
bad situation (even life threatening) could
teach us something is one of the greatest
coping mechanisms of champions. See the
situation as one that won’t take you down,
but one you will get through and learn
from. You might end up with scars, but
sometimes even scars are beautiful. They
are evidence of the champion that you are,
and a reminder of how far you’ve come
when you finally win.

So in every painful situation, always think
about what lesson there is to learn. And
when your pain beclouds your judgement,
ask God what he wants you to learn from
that trying situation.

Make this a habit and you will see
negative patterns change in your life.
