Remember pain and lack of control are actually our friends. Our neuro system and ability to rationalize results of our situation through cognitive integration provides us with the feedback we need to improve. If we do not listen or feel this feedback, we will not improve, and in fact may harm ourselves. These sensations and sensory feedback loops are telling us that we are using what the Great Designer has given us in either the right or the wrong way, and we should seek change to what "feels comfortable" for you specifically. For a teacher to tell you it's my way or the highway, proceed immediately for the exit ramp and drive away from this teacher.
