Suffering is NOT a requisite for success.
As someone once said, “Pain is mandatory, suffering is optional.”
We all experience pain during our lives. It’s inevitable. It’s part of the human condition. However, focusing on it and fearing how much worse it can get does nothing to limit nor lower it.
When I am in pain, I am able to reach out to others for support and to take time to comfort myself. At times like those I need healing, not more to worry about.
