When we experience physical pain, we know it's an indicator that there is "trouble" in our body. Whether it's a scrape or a serious invasion of some kind to our health, we know that the pain is letting us know that something needs attention, help and healing. It's the same with our mental and emotional pain: something is wrong, and it needs attention, help and healing.
That being said, we can often get treatment and medication for our physical struggles. However, it's very different when the pain is mental and or emotional. Heartaches, heartbreaks, disappointments and grief carry their own kind of healing time and methods, and it is different for all of us.

Is there purpose in your pain? From a very practical standpoint, the things we go through and grow through teach us that we can get through just about anything. And, for those who are on the journey with us, and those who are just watching, it's showing them that when the tough times come, they can get through them, too. A purpose may not be apparent, but your conviction to survive is. ~ S.R.F.
