Suffering is not an attractive thought, yet it is part of our lives as much as life and death is.
Since we are here, and we are bound to suffer. Then only thing that matters is counts is what do we do with it.
Do we deny or accept the suffering? Do we perhaps view it as an opportunity to grow, and seeing it as an opportunity to learn.
What we experience as suffering is a really good motivator as we are likely to avoid that in the future. When we understand that the suffering is really an attempt o learn something, we may go far. We have re-framed the suffering as something part of life and merely a signal that something should be learned so that we do not have to simply wait here until something happens.
