Choose your pain

No matter how you slice it, life is painful. If you try to do the right thing, you will suffer loneliness, rejection, frustration, hopelessness, etc. If you give in and do the wrong thing you will feel the pain of regret.

Imagine being old and looking back on your life and sensing an overwhelming pain of regret. (think about that) Compare that with the frustrations of holding out for the right things and suffering some frustrations along the way. The cumulative impact of doing the right things adds up to a tremendous blessing to others and a full life for yourself. The cumulative impact of the easy and selfish road is just a world of hurt for everyone.

So the bad news is that life is painful. The good new is that you get to choose your pain. Not bad.
