“No pain, no gain”

My heart is sad again
for one or no reason
I feel the stab the pain
I hate feeling like this
I hate shading my tears
I just wanna live in peace!
“No pain, no gain,” they say!
But why?

  1. yeah i want an answer to that too. why no pain no gain?
    what gain is a gain if there is too much pain?
    and often times you pain and pain and pain and no gain!
    at other times, or mostly for ‘others’, it’s always gain and gain!

    • “what gain is a gain if there is too much pain?
      and often times you pain and pain and pain and no gain!
      at other times, or mostly for ‘others’, it’s always gain and gain!” Life is unfair, isn’t it? :lol: Sometimes we just have to suck it up!! The alternative may not be a better choice. :(

  2. I ask that all the time. Why? Why must we hurt to gain?
    And there’s no answer. Of course. There’s never an answer.
    What a thought-provoking post, Elyas…Life is so unfair.

  4. no pain no gain, it was written in our school wall ;) old memories related to it,our english teacher very old in age wrote that for us .
    and i will say ” after every rainfall must come a rainbow “

  5. We learn from every heartbreak, encounter, emotional upheaval, mistake, (on and on) we have in life. We become stronger and know ourselves better. Does it mean that a little hurt will eventually help us “gain” more insight into ourselves and thus become stronger emotionally, mentally, intellectually?

    I know in the physical sense it has long been said: “no pain, no gain” meaning you won’t build muscle or lose weight unless you suffer some pain in your workout….which I find appalling and really not true!

    • I don’t mean a LOT of hurt…because that is something different. That could be bullying, or abuse, etc., which would be intolerable and inexcusable.

      I’m talking about the regular stuff we all deal with in our lives: a word of criticism from the boss, a rude remark by a store clerk, a broken romance, a goofy mistake on a test we’ve taken….etc.

      • “I don’t mean a LOT of hurt…because that is something different. That could be bullying, or abuse, etc., which would be intolerable and inexcusable.” Yes, no one wants that kind of hurt and must not be tolerated or excused! :)

    • “We learn from every heartbreak, encounter, emotional upheaval, mistake, (on and on) we have in life.” So true, Judy! Sometimes we learn more from the negative things that happen in our lives for us to become more positive. :)
