Programming is occasionally painful. This is why you see the plethora of various frameworks coming and going. How we deal with it differ. If you are a programmer at heart, then you can tell when the complexity is accidental, not essential. In the same way that most programmers remember the first time they saw their own code execute and realized their power over the machine, there is a similar defining moment for a smaller set of programmers when something that was painful becomes trivial with the addition of a framework you made yourself. After that, pain is assumed to be temporary and eventually conquered.
