Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional (a quote by Haruki Murakami, an author.)
Suffering, agony, hurt, struggle, discomfort, torment, torture. What we feel when there is an end to something. Pain reminds us we are alive. Pain is part of growth therefor in order to grow and not be stuck pain is inevitable. We cannot hide from it for long. We cannot pretend everything is okay. We cannot grow without first acknowledging the pain of growth. It is when we deny the pain we have, we then are suffering and suffering only makes the pain worse. Remember that we cannot avoid pain in our life however we can choose if we want to suffer and that is part of growth.
Namaste my friends.
