Suffering is...

"It is often the ordeals that seem most significant. People shoot for happiness but feel formed through suffering (David Brooks 'What Suffering Does')."

Suffering is the experience of going through something that is unfavorable, painful, distressing or harmful. Everyone deals with suffering at some point in their life. Through suffering a person learns, evolves, and changes from their experiences. Suffering is a major part of life and helps make up who we are.


Most people try to live a meaningful life. This can mean a lot of things to different people. Most people are looking for happiness, purpose, and importance. This can be achieved through many parts of a persons life through a career, hobbies, friends, family and community. Being successful and happy can lead to a meaningful life.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that's why its called the present.
