Why suffering is inevitable

1 min readDec 2, 2018


Suffering is seen as the opposite of happiness instead of simply the price we pay for being alive.

Life in itself is a suffering.

We need to accept that pain and discomfort are unavoidable.
Almost paradoxically, the greater our acceptance the greater our happiness.

You will suffer no matter what you do in life. It’s just inevitable. Suffering is a test. That’s all it is.

Exactly the same goes with failure.

Every time you fail and carry on regardless, you become stronger. You prove to yourself and others around you that pain and discomfort don’t bring you down. The very best part is that the more you fail, the better you become at dealing with it. The better you feel about failure, the more you’ll feel inclined to try.

You can only become better as a result of your failures.

It isn’t what happens to us in life that determines the ultimate outcome but how we react.
