Have you ever experienced a feeling that was unbearable?
We have all had moments of pain, sorrow, anxiety and stress that have felt unbearable in that moment. Yet, after having experienced those feelings, we are still here. It turns out that we did bear them – that we were capable of bearing them.
The moment you experience discomfort, you have already borne it. What makes something feel unbearable is the fear of having to bear it in the next moment. Understanding this fear gives us the strength to bear that which was once unbearable.
