What does it mean to welcome pain?
I was reading this story about this girl who's been through a lot of hardships and struggles, and in the book she said that she "welcomed pain" in her life, and claimed she felt comfortable in pain and that she liked pain. What does that exactly mean?

By welcomed pain she probably means that she did nothing to avoid or fight it off since she was acoustumed to it. Alternatively, it could mean she feels numb, and is greatful to feel anything at all, even pain.

It probably means that she can handle it when it comes because she's already been through so much. When you're so accustomed to feeling pain and it's the only thing you know; you tend to seek after it.
