I watched last night on “Torn From the Headlines: New York Post Reports,” a story about a 68 year-old kidnap victim who survived 12 days buried alive in 1993.
The victim was Harvey Weinstein, the CEO of a tuxedo manufacturing company. His kidnappers held him for ransom for $3 million in dark tomb – with him surviving on just some pieces of fruit and little water.
What an amazing story of strength, I thought to myself as I watched the show. We can learn a lot from this man.
So, I did some reading this morning to learn more.
There is a quote from Weinstein from a 1993 Los Angeles Times article that hit home for me. He said, “I can’t permit fear to govern my life.”
We can do the same when it comes to chronic pain. Sometimes, it’s the fear of pain that holds us back.
Read the story.
