I completely disagree that you can somehow "accept" the pain and engulf yourself in suffering and that somehow is beneficial.
I don't know if "beneficial" is the right term, but it may at times be a better alternative than not accepting the pain? Sometimes I'm faced with painful situations, despite my greatest efforts. Sometimes I get hit in the face for reasons beyond my control. But I have a choice about how to react to that sensation. What will getting upset accomplish, I ask myself. When I realize that sometimes it accomplishes nothing... I can choose to not get upset. And when I do that, the pain doesn't seem like anything particularly "wrong". Its just another sensation, in my view.
