Why do people not seek pain relief when they face difficult situations in their lives?

This past week, I met two individuals who told me they recently went through a very difficult time in their lives. When we are going through tough painful episodes in life, we often isolate ourselves. It is important to seek pain relief, however, isolating oneself from others is the wrong approach as it keeps us in a state of negative trance with our limiting thoughts.

During these times, the best course of action is to reach out to a trusted professional or friend to gain a different perspective, share how you are feeling with someone who can keep your confidences and positively stimulate you out of your low state. Gossip is the last thing you want to be dealing with when you are in pain, so ensure they can hold your confidence. You don’t have to suffer pain and heartache alone, get pain relief!

Find someone who can help you think outside the box, often the answer(s) to your problem is waiting for you to pose the right question and its waiting just outside the box that hold your problems. I want to encourage you today, no matter what you are going through if you change the focus of your thoughts and engage in a positive discussion, you will find yourself gaining some clarity, momentum and pain relief.

We have a form on our website that people complete when they are not sure whether to stay in pain or move forward with support. You are welcome to complete. It may help you gain some clarity for yourself. Click this link to assess your situation. There is no obligation to filling out this form. We will only call you if you tell us to call you.
