People appreciate the saying, "No pain, no gain."
I have no idea who first said it. But is it so true?
Firstly: Whose pain are we referring to?
That of others?
Next: What are we trying to gain?
Is this gain worth the pain of you, or of others?
Is this gain worth the pain of losing other things?
Other things you never knew you had?
Never knew until they were gone?
Once you've lost these things, you wonder:
Was the pain truly worth the gain?
So, again: "No pain, no gain."
Was it true?
