Wow I'm glad to see my name as one of the winners once more, congrats to @riandeuk @houseofdavid and myself, more wins to us.
For the random question of the day - If Suffering is an important part of life?
I'll say a big YES, it is a very important part of the human life. Well, my reason is simple.
I've heard a sentence before saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" that's what suffering can do to most people going through it.
We face sufferings in different aspects of life, it could be in academics, marriage, place of work or even from kids to parents and ice versa.. Suffering can be in any form, but they happen to make a point or make someone stronger.
I'm not saying suffering is good, but it is nature that some people also go through it because of their past sins or even because they choose that path themselves.
That's all I can say but I'll appreciate a feedback if I'm getting anything wrong here.
Thanks for this initiative, it's thought provoking and really interesting.
Congrats to you too! Always happy to be in the list every now and again.
As for the thought of the day. I agree wholeheartedly. It's not even remotely desirable to erase suffering from existence.
While we can make an effort to minimise any extreme forms of suffering there are no highs without lows.
Suffering comes in many forms and we can only control so much..
