How Having A High Pain Threshold Is A Deadly Trait You Need To Get Rid Of.





They say if you put a frog in boiling water it will immediately jump out, but if you put that same frog in room temperature water and boil it slowly, it will be boiled alive without jumping out. Think about it, that's sometimes the daily grind. I mean if we as people were thrown in immense pain with a certain situation we would want out of it immediately, but if that immense pain crept up on us in a course of weeks or months then we wouldn't know what the hell happened? When did it start? How did things get this way? Maybe you can't even recall because you were put in room temperature water until boiled alive, and now you can't get out of the funk. Imagine if you felt the water getting hotter, and you immediately saved yourself the pain of being boiled alive. I'm using these words to portray a strong analogy, you may not agree with everything I say and that's fine I'm writing this out of personal experience when I knew I should of got the hell out the water but it was too late. It was too late.. Now, of course the whole experience and pain has subsided and I blame a high pain threshold to many faults of life.

See I know many people, struggling with certain addictions, hurting themselves, relationships that are no good and they justify the unjustifiable, and I feel the reason is it doesn't hurt bad enough to change. It's like the story of the 'two old friends and the dog', if you haven't heard this story I'm going to tell it to you now. One day in particular, an old friend visits another old friend, picture this, an old guy sitting on the porch with dark black sunglasses, he has a cane in one hand and not too far from his feet is his dog. So his old buddy makes his way to his friend on the porch and as he gets closer he starts to hear groaning from the dog. He says to his old pal "hey man, what's wrong with your dog?" The old man replies "He's sitting on a thumbtack.." His friend says "Well why doesn't he get up?" He replies "Well it doesn't hurt bad enough yet.

Allow me to ask you, what do we prove when we go through unneeded pain? That we can handle a high pain threshold? How does that help? Maybe if you're getting tortured and you're behind enemy lines as a soldier which is a real possibility in a state of war. But think about it, dig deep, has dealing with high amounts of stress and pain for complete bulls***  make you a better person? 

A good friend of mine wrote something on Facebook, it was so funny because it's so true. I'm going to include it here. 'What doesn't kill you teaches you a lot of unhealthy coping skills and leaves you with a very dark sense of humor.'

Does dealing with situations you know damn well could be avoided make you better? Or make you bitter? That's up to you to decide and I believe for anyone who's currently going through 'it' to consciously lower your pain threshold. This entire article is based on I've hit rock bottom, fell to hell and kept going and there were many witnesses of that downfall who are my friends and peers today. Fast forward to today, when something hurts, eradicate the problem. It's extremely risky to continue letting situations that don't have to be situations become situations. You have to be as solid as a brick, you have to guard your mindset like your life depends on it. The only time people change is when they hit rock bottom usually, sometimes they don't even change once they hit rock bottom. This is not a 'go-to-guide', It's meant to spark the mind to think, like Ice Cube said "Cause' when its sink or swim / You gotta' think to win." Lower your pain threshold, improve your life tenfold.
