Day 27: Hope Again
Today’s clip refers to an individual that has lost his way. In this scene from x-men days of future past Charles speaks to his future self about how he is surrounded by pain and overwhelmed by it. How being afraid of our pain can make us lose hope when trying to find a solution. Perhaps it is not completely about finding a solution? Perhaps it is better to understand the mechanisms that science is teaching about pain, which is contextual, that there is more to pain than just understanding it. There are many forces and influences in this world that have an effect on our pain experience. Understanding the speed bumps along the way can help us to overcome them and move forward. That by having a little hope can support us through the tough times in and out of the presence of pain in order to live well.
Have any thoughts?
