Happiness Vs. Pain

“Life is pain . . . anyone who says differently is selling something.”  Jeremy McCarthy begins with this quote and goes on to discuss  how pain  is part and parcel of life.

So we can’t avoid pain at times in our life such as after an operation or when we have to  deal with a particular condition or injury. However how we deal with that pain can make a big difference.  Psychology can’t make pain go away but Jeremy discusses here how it can be a coping strategy when it feels like the pain you suffer blots out all the happiness in your life.
