Reframe “chronic pain” as “ongoing, intermittent life challenges”

What a difference if we reframe these words!
In essence, who, then, doesnt have “chronic pain?” Absolutely no one!
It’s the same for the word “retirement.” No one really “retires” anymore. Instead, it is termed, “lifestyle enrichment.” You may typically work even a few hours, volunteer, take up hobbies, see friends or family, have alone time to read, write, meditate or pray.
Your capacity to reframe words will help you understand that pain-challenges are an everyday part of your life. After all, who doesn’t experience variable intensities of life stressors, emotions, negative thinking or of fortitude?
Perceive “chronic pain” as “ongoing, intermittent life challenges and opportunities to grow and remain resilient!
