In Pain

Life is such an under-rated word. We are always in Pain. We are in Pain when we gain something and we are in Pain when we lose something. However, the feeling of pain is felt more when we lose something. The joy of gaining something kinda nullifies it's pain.

Physical pain can be overcome by medicines. Taking a pain killer can temporarily relieve that pain. We can continue with our lives until the pain comes back.

Emotional pain is very difficult to overcome. Science has defined such pain as depression. Pills can temporarily relieve the pain. But that pain can haunt us back once the chemicals of the pill subside in our body. In order to come out of emotional pain, we have to be strong emotionally. We have to build our will power so that we can absorb the pain with a smiling face.

Lot of studies have been done on Pain and mankind.

Scientists have done extensive studies on pain and human nature. A human's physical pain can be overcome by just thinking of a loved one. A classic example is of a mother giving birth. She is constantly reminded of the baby whom she is giving birth to. And that joy of having the baby in her arms makes her push and push hard. She sweating in pain. The pain is excruciating, but she continues to do so. Is'nt that the wonder of having a loved one in your arms?

Man is a Social Animal. Below link talks about what and how humans react in times of distress and joy and how is it beneficial for our well being.

They can only survive when surrounded by humans. They need humans for comfort and joy. They need to interact with humans. This human-human bond is unbreakable. This bond has made us believe in relationships and love and caring. This has ultimately reduced our physical pain and the dependancy on drugs/medicines has been reduced to a certain extent.

We should be proud of ourselves. Besides making a rocket and sending it to space. Besides, discovering water on moon. We have also been able to nurture our relationship with our kith and kins. This nurturing has made us relieve our physical pain to a certain extent.
