Many faiths believe that suffering brings you closer to holiness. I have heard that suffering can carve out new areas of understanding of one’s self and others. The Buddha believed that to live is to suffer. And yet for me, this way of thinking seems like a total nightmare. I have always worked hard to avoid suffering and strove to seek my lessons through love and joy. Join me as we tackle the eternal challenge of suffering and its possible merits and lessons in our lives.
