Joy lies in your capacity to take hurt

Joy lies in your capacity to take hurt. The more hurt you can take, it proves that you are still on top of the hurt. The moment you say, ‘I cannot take anymore’, the moment you start blocking hurt that is the moment when hurt has won.

The reward of the one who is capable of taking wounds is that he gets more wounds.
