Below I've included a really good quote from Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) in regards to pain. In case you've never watched OITNB, the show is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, about her experiences in a women's prison.The series' protagonist is Piper Chapman, a woman sentenced to 15 months in a woman's federal prison for her part in a drug smuggling operation ten years before the start of the first season. Stella is an Australian inmate who is quite mysterious. She has taken an immediate shine to Piper, the two become fast friends and Stella is first to volunteer for Piper's new used panty business. In this scene Stella is giving Piper a tattoo.
Piper Chapman: "Oww! Ooooh that hurts. I need a distraction!"
Stella's response: "No, that's not it at all. You need to do the opposite. You need to honor the pain. Really feel it. Tell yourself to get into it. Your pain. You're really into it. You own it!!!"
