Distraction from the pain

Standard

I suppose this is more of a question than a commentary. And I’m not even sure how I answer it, myself.  But tonight was a much needed distraction from a relatively painful few days, and it makes me wonder how other people distract themselves from the pain in their life.

Sure, some people use chemicals and various substances.  I’m not really talking about those, although they work, for the most part.  Other people crawl into the loving arms of Papa God and listen to his reassuring words of comfort and hope. Tonight, I spent time with great people watching a play and laughing my head off. It’s a welcome distraction that I didn’t see coming. In my mind, it was far more effective than talking it out with someone. The evening was free of substances (well, except for a couple glasses of wine) and it was superb.

Life is really difficult sometimes and I’m curious as to how you knowingly or unknowingly distract yourself from the pain in your life. Do you spend time with fun people? Do you engross yourself in a good book? Do you write a good book?  Do you run it off with a long jog? What’s your distraction?

    I feel the same way too- life can be very hard. To distract myself I try n keep myself busy with work or listen to some good music especially praise and worship songs. when I get to praise n worship the Lord I feel the load lifted…l Like your blog 🙂
