Problem of pain

Debate over owning the pain underlying self destructive behavior (ifs model)

Scholar
Why would I accept something I hate?
Orator
None of my training can reconcile this.
Saint
But, didn’t Jesus say “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”?
Orator
Confounded! She has a point. Ugh. I’m the one that’s usually always right.
Scholar
Dear orator, just because I don’t flaunt my knowledge, doesn’t mean I’m not just as right, if not more so. I’ve studied under great minds as have you.
Self
Hey guys...back to the matter at hand...
Pollyanna
Everyone! Look at all the things we do! Look at all the things we’ve done! Isn’t it amazing?! I can make a list for you all.
Masochist
Hard pass darling. As far as I see it the more pain the better...
The Dictator
After all, “arbiet macht frei”
Judge
What kind of work though? Dictator, do we work harder or smarter?
Masochist
Both!
