Eyeshield 21, an amateur at American Football, yet a person with a great talent in speed suffered his first tackle. It was a rather painful one. It most likely damaged not only his physical body, but also caused some emotional scars.
We have a natural avoidance for pain. (Unless you’re a masochist who prefers to receive pain…) Such is observed when we accidentally touch a hot object and we react with reflex by pulling it away. Once pain is experienced, we would rather not have to go through it again.
I can imagine the fear of possibly going through another painful experience. And that could affect us mentally, which would then affect us physically. We tend to be more careful, and try to take lesser risks that could result to the pain.
How would Sena react to this turn of events? He’d rise to the challenge, of course!
We fail, we fall, but we must stand up and rise again. What does not kill us makes us stronger. Once we overcome that fear of experiencing pain again, we become braver.
I find it timely that I try blogging here again with this episode. After my previous post, I felt that I should try again. Hey, no pain, no gain, right?
