Pain Is Inevitable, Suffering Is Optional

Pain is inevitable

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. Carrying the dead…. will only prolong the suffering.

  1. I lost my husband last year. I believe that all the pain I am going through now is part of a healing process. For those who have lost their loved ones; pain and suffering is part of something we all go through. It all depends on each person how long they need in order to feel what they need to feel and the amount of time for this suffering to go through. We all are one, yet so different from one another. We all have different ways of coping with loss and emotions. As an individual, each person needs their own time and their own way of coping with a loss of a loved one. Sometimes, this suffering is what heals us inside. As long as you know that you will get through it, take as long as you need. Let no other person tell you what is right and what is wrong. You be yourself….Just don’t forget to take care of yourself.
    All my prayers are with those who need it the most.

  2. suffering is totally optional. I have learned the hard way, how long do I want to sit in my own shit? I've been like a dog gnawing a bone over stuff before, recreating the pain, remembering every detail and beating myself up for it. Today I know that I don't have to do that. I can choose to stand still or I can stand to do something about the pain. Example: I lost my husband 22 years ago. I suffered from that for years and I mean years. The only one who suffered was me. He didn't. From pain comes growth. Suffering creates nothing but heartache for yourself but for everyone around you.
