Don’t let pain stop you: An inspirational story
Hello everyone, I am going to tell you a beautiful story today.
There was a father and a daughter.
The daughter has loved running since she was very small.
The father and the daughter used to go for a walk every day in the morning.
The father used to draw a line and ask her to run there as fast as she could and return.
As his daughter loved running so much, she used to run every day, as her father said.
This is a daily practice for the kid.
Some days she ran to the line and came back happy and some days she fell to the ground and was wounded.
She used to cry because of the pain. The father used to carry the first aid kit, and he applied some ointment and bandage and asked her to run.
She would do as her father said. She got wounded several times, and he never asked her to stop.
One day, she was wounded, and she asked her father, why do you want me to run and not stop even though I am in pain. Normally, other fathers don’t do that. They would treat their kids differently.
He smiled and answered,
Listen to me carefully. Pain is inevitable in everybody’s life. You can’t avoid it. You must face it and move forward.
If you stop now because of pain, it will become a habit, and you will never get what you want.
You should never give up, especially on the things you love the most. Always remember this lesson.
The daughter understood the father and held his hands and said, “Thanks Dad.” and asked, “Then what about these wounds on my face, hands, and legs?”
He smiled again and said, “They are the beauty spots, which are the symbols of hard work and never giving up.”
The daughter gave a harsh look at the father and laughed hard.
She said, let’s continue the practice.
Isn’t it a wonderful story?
Even in our life, we easily give up on our dreams because of pain, which is not the right thing to do.
Instead, we need to face our pains and move forward, not giving up.
It makes you strong, happy, and more beautiful.
See you again…
