      Pain does lead to happiness through wisdom.
      A haunting past is only a view, as is beauty. It is you who needs to find the wisdom offered in the learning of dealing with your past, for which, haunts you. wink

          All roads lead to happiness, because that is the ultimate goal each person tries to obtain. Pain "may"(being a bad word) sometimes leads to happiness is incorrect, due to a lack of wisdom. smile big_smile

    Depends on if you're in to fetishes...I guess.

    Perhaps I don't understand the question. If you have a tootache that doesn't allow you to eat steak, you have the painful tooth removed and you're happy you can eat steak again.

    Many authors and artists, haunted by their lives, have created beautiful works of art...I think it was Divinci who cut his own ear off.

      Van Gough cut off a portion of his ear; Divinci was left handed.

          Sometimes less pain is happiness in itself! If you have a painful past, you have to find a door that you can close on that past and live your present and dream your future.

    In all my simple-mindedness, I see it this way:

    Pain:  Bad - and not related to happiness.

    Happiness:  Good - and only possible when there isn't pain.

    I,personally, would be happier with a little less wisdom "born of pain", and nothing painful that ever happened in my life has led to any lessons I wouldn't have been happier not having learned.

    So, in answer to the question, I'd say, "no".  Pain doesn't lead to happiness.
