Tolerance - ability to endure hardship: the ability to put up with harsh or difficult conditions.
The cycle of abuse spins due to this abnormal tolerance, it allows children to become so desensitized to pain and harsh conditions, that soon they can’t even feel it.
Their tolerance allows them to overlook a difficult condition and the more they overlook, the more tolerable they become and the more abnormal.
Painlessly tolerant to harsh conditions, you can literally call it home, family, and love.
I know it has been hard to explain, how I could not have known, how can you live in dysfunction and not know it, but having a high tolerance you have a distorted view.
In fact the more you suffer the higher the tolerance and the more pain you can suffer and the more you can suffer the less harsh it seems.
Your tolerance level allows lots in before your pain meter beeps.
I often wondered myself how a child can continue to endure or how I was able to withstand the conditions being so young and unskilled, but I wasn’t aware we grow our tolerance muscles when we are asked to continually and repeatedly put up with harsh conditions.
You become accustomed to the behavior…
I had felt that I was out of touch or numb or my feelings seemed to be out of reach, but in fact it just took lots to get my pain meter from registering.
As I lost my tolerance for pain I have been able to open the valve on the love meter.
I am not certain, but it seems probable, that you can’t have both the love meter and the pain meter running together.
Who knew that by shutting off the tolerance for pain, love would appear?
What I had to do was love myself enough to stop the pain.
