Suffering is part of our journey in this life for without it, there is no growth for us. In order for us to understand what we need to learn about who we are to be in this life, we must experience the pain of growing up.
Some of us believe that if we pretend that we are happy, then we will be happy. This leads us to an inauthentic life. A fake life is a build up of pain that we do not recognize and we deny its existence. We want everything to look perfect for us. We must not be afraid of this pain; we all experience it. Understand that is part of our “design’ as human beings to experience ”growing” pains.
We receive moments of happiness in this life, but there is no permanence to it. Perhaps not until the end of our life when we have done the work of growing which in the end allows us to see our life as a journey. Well worth the work!
