“What are we trying to heal, anyway?

The athlete knows the day will never come when he wakes up pain-free. He has to play hurt.

Remember, the part of us that we imagine needs healing is not the part we create from; that part is far deeper and stronger.

The part we create from can’t be touched by anything our parents did, or society did. That part is unsullied, uncorrupted; soundproof, waterproof, and bulletproof.

In fact, the more troubles we’ve got, the better and richer that part becomes.”

― Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
