Imagine a dragon breathing its inferno, and then watch it engulf everything in its path. Chronic pain acts like that; it is a raging fire that devours logical thinking. It incinerates comfort, companionship, dreams and goals. When pain dominates, it’s a force that must be challenged.

Day Forty

Our language holds power in the choice of words both in meaning and symbol.  We have grown accustomed to overstatement and barely notice the exaggeration that absolute terms like “never”, everyone”. “nothing”, “always” impose on our perceptions.  On a subconscious level these words are taken literally and our minds change our experience to fit the new definitions.  Hence we suffer so much more than necessary.  Literally, it only seems like “always” or “never”.  Bringing digital exactitude to our self talk is exchanging conflated hurting terms for precision power terms. “Rarely”, “frequently”, “some” or “few” are more honest and much less damaging.

“Always avoid never and never use always.”
~ Jeff

Dr. Jeff Miller is a counseling psychologist in private practice.  Among other interests, Jeff values working with patients with chronic pain and illness.
