One thought on “Suffering is Optional

  1. As one who has suffered all my life, and also, lived and lives in chronic pain, I think I understand what Buddha is trying to say. But it is not applicable in every situation. I.E. a survivor burned in a fire (like my younger brother), a painful deteriorating disease (such as I have), a child held captive by human traffickers (which I experienced personally), etc.
