Suffering…it’s part of being human. It is the human condition. We all suffer, and we all try to relieve our suffering. Often by any means at our disposal (lacandlesughter, exercise, addiction, violence, suicide). But the thing to remember when we are in the midst of our despair: so is everyone else. It does no good to push our suffering, our pain, our anguish onto others. Transferring our suffering onto others does not alleviate our own suffering but only makes it grow since we have now inflicted pain on another. The only way to overcome our suffering is to sit with it, as painful as that is. To learn to embrace it, to not turn away but to welcome it as a part of ourselves. Only acceptance can lead to relief, to healing.
