Suffering is caused by the story you make up about your reality.
What stories are you making up about yourself, your life and those around you?
What impact are they having?
It’s not what happens to you but how you interpret and what you make things mean that causes you suffering.
Suffering is not a requirement.
Pain is inevitable and suffering is optional.
We sometimes become addicted to suffering as a false way to feel alive, and struggle becomes the drug of choice that we use for a cheap high.
