The need for Suffering

Suffering is best enjoyed in silence. I’m currently suffering from NDTDA. It’s a rare disease that loosely translates to No Desire To Do Anything Syndrome. I was first diagnosed as a toddler, the doctor promised my parents that I would outgrow it in the end. I’m glad to announce that in 2022, the doctor has been proven wrong.

Sometimes the only way around suffering is to go straight through it. Why bother asking for help when you can charge right through the chaos. What doesn’t kill you now will make you stronger in the end. The only antidote to mental suffering is physical pain. Want to be truly free? Try hitting your head on a concrete wall multiple times. Pain is your dearest friend, it’s always there for you.

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering. A lot of people go through a lot and imagine there is a meaning to it. There’s no hidden meaning. The Universe is doing its best to frustrate you into giving up. It’s an exclusive form of natural selection and you’re the guinea pig in this control experiment.

Suffering is humbling. It pays to know how to get your butt kicked. Suffering is like anything else. Live with it long enough, you learn to like the taste. We are healed of suffering only by experiencing it to the full. So if you’ve only suffered halfway, you need to go back to the beginning and get it done right this time. No shortcuts!

Some people are suffering and you’ll never know because they suffer in silence. But not me, I’m screaming as loud as I possibly can. Out of suffering emerges the strongest souls, the most massive characters that are seared with scars. I’ll take solace in the fact that pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. If you’re not suffering right now, you’re not intelligent.

The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the one that is worth suffering for. True suffering is coming home after a long day to discover your sibling has eaten the food you hid in the freezer. Now you know nobody in the house can be trusted. Suffering is an extraordinary teacher. You suddenly come up with new and creative ways to hide your food around the house.

Doctors have just discovered a food that can cause grief and suffering years after it’s been eaten. It’s called a Wedding Cake. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.

Suffer, you deserve it.
