…and pretend it’ll go away?

Aches and pains aren’t something we’re used to tolerating. We take ourselves to the doctors or the pharmacy and sort it out. We trawl through website after website, analysing symptoms and possible cures until we’re sure what’s wrong and how to fix it. So why, when we’re in intense emotional pain, do we shrug it off, brush it under the carpet and pretend it’ll go away? We assume that struggling in silence is our only choice. But there’s a second option. Make a decisive change. You’re being offered an opportunity – take it.
