Finding Meaning in Suffering

Life’s a roller-coaster especially for individuals who have trouble stabilizing their emotions such as myself. I have been told many times that I am an intense individual in terms of my emotions. But why do people feel that way?

As an individual I have suffered lots… many times due to my own choosing. My belief is something powerful comes along with suffering and that something is love and appreciation. Consider the differences of a child who has been spoiled to a child who has been suffering; suffering places a stronger focus on needs rather than wants whereas being spoiled puts the focus on wants more than needs.

Suffering tends to have a negative connotation to the word when realistically we all suffer in various ways and it’s what makes living really worth something.

“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering” – Friedriche Nietzsche
