Because no superhero movie is complete without SSApplicable advice, here is what Professor X says to his younger self (who is coming to terms with a painful experience) in the newest X-Men Movie:
Professor X: "It's not their pain you're afraid of, it's yours, Charles. And as frightening as it may be...pain will make you stronger. If you allow yourself to feel it, embrace it, it will make you more powerful than you ever imagined. It's the greatest gift we have, to bear pain without breaking, and it's born from the most human power: Hope."
Parts of the journey can be painful and uncomfortable, but through Christ I know it will only make us stronger in the end.
