Pleasure and Pain

In life we are driven to seeking pleasure.    We therefore seek to avoid pain.   Pain is not always bad, as is pleasure not always good.

Paul Lepa


Interpretation:  For example, we may perceive as work being painful, and vacations being pleasurable.  In fact, it’s a lot about framing things.

We further avoid pain, such as doing things we don’t like, however, by doing that we deny ourselves pleasure.  So, there is a ying/yang effect between pleasure / pain – and one cannot exist without the other.  

Just call me Nietzsche.
