Escalating our Pain

This grief quote is from Mindfulness & Grief by Heather Stang. 














Imagine you are struck by an arrow. It hurts. Then imagine being struck immediately by a second arrow. That hurts even more. The Buddha explained that the first arrow is pain that cannot be avoided. The second arrow represents our reaction to the first. It escalates our pain into suffering.
