Inspired Sunday #2

I can’t walk for a few minutes on heels without feeling the burning pressure all over my body, soul and spirit. In spite of this, I wear heels. I need to! The longer the heels, the better!

Come on, “all” ladies should look gorgeous when going to a certain event and high heel is synonymous to such outing. That’s one of the many ladies headaches, just like making up before leaving the house.

So I wear heels and I walk on them, certainly.

When I do, after some time, each step I take begins to feel like hell. It brings an excruciating, warping pain. I suck it all up and keep working. Working hard to keep walking in pain.

Think about a thousand steps bringing a thousand pain!!

This makes me to think about how foolish someone like me could be. Why should I keep on with an experience that brings me so much pain?

To look good? To satisfy somebody else’s sense of sight? Someone who probably doesn’t care?

Is this even enough reason?

If someone is sick and is going through some pain, they have a good reason – what option do they have than to bear such pain? Pain is part of their recovery process, so they endure this pain 👍💯

It’s enough reason to bear the pain of childbirth – to bring life forth in pain is plausible. 👏👏🤝

To take up punches from a hardened boxer or wrestler when you’re determined to take a champion’s belt home is sensible. 🤛🤛🤛

To walk barefoot on thorns and lie on thistle is not realistic.

To abandon the skin to mosquitoes so they could feed is, what?

There should be a good reason for enduring or bearing any pain or we give what is causing us pain no chance to inflict us. We keep fighting until we are totally free.

Do you have a good reason for enduring that pain? That mistreatment? Do you have a good reason for taking and enduring that brutal punch? Is the struggle worth the outcome?

People die because they were set to tolerate toxicity and endure brutality.

Am I ruling out endurance? No. I only support enduring for a good cause.

I will wear my heels but I will always, always carry my comfy shoes along.👟 👟.

Have a blessed Sunday😍💖

  1. I know this wasn’t the point of your write-up but Heels Are sooo Painful! And I love the fact that you brought up this analogy. Pain is there in the human body to endure and grow from it. Lovely post❤️

      Women should expose there beauty. Biko! Awkwardness is not spirituality. Many who felt pain over heels may have healed guys with broken-hearted who love pretty things. While some got married surprisingly. Your pain is your gain.
      This write-up is inspiring. Thanks for sharing❤️ Much love

      • Thank you for a nice comment and for the insight. I agree with you, pain is gain. Pain must be endured to be able to access certain life success. But what if the pain you’re bearing has no gain? Women wear heels to look more attractive, its a good reason but not worth bearing pain for. I love heels too but one thing about heel is once you walk about on it for a while it begins to pinch and sting and pain. Women like me pull them off when the pain becomes unbearable. We pull them off because we can and nothing is lost by doing so. After all there are still pretty ones without high heels out there. Bearing pain in life for nothing is not worth it at all.
