"Pain is the great teacher of mankind. Beneath its breath souls develop."
~ Marie Dubsky ~
No matter what we're going through, it could always be worse. We don't have to look far to see others in equal or more challenging situations. It's our shared suffering that unites us as human beings, and that raises our compassion and keeps us humble and grateful that we are blessed in the ways that we are- and conscious of the fact that we are not victims, but participants. Suffering is simply part of the experience of life on earth.
I accept my suffering and have compassion for us all.
