The harder the hit, the more it will sting. That’s usually the case.
So we prescribe.
Drugs. Rest, ice compression, elevation.
Things you do to stop the immediate pain.
But you can only dull the pain for so long, and when the drugs start to wear off…
it really hurts.
There’s a reason these fixes are called temporary. They were never meant to last forever.
So what happens when you’re face with a fix that’s more permanent? Do you fight it? Do you try to resist? Or you step back and decide that maybe acceptance…
is the best fix of all?
