This week we are asked;
Do you agree that human suffering can be beneficial and that suffering is a necessary part of the human condition? Why or why not?
Everyone who has lived has faced some sort of hardship and suffering in their life. The degrees and intensity are different for everyone, but no one has escaped it, ever.
Children who have lived a very protected childhood have a lot of difficulties when they enter adulthood and practical life. They aren’t used to facing hardships and feel perturbed when things don’t go their way.
Whatever is our lot in life, it has both ups and downs. Some people do have it very tough while others have it comparatively easy but we all go through hard times to become the people we are meant to be.
So yes, I think humans generally benefit from facing hardships in life, provided that they are willing to learn the lesson life wants to teach them.
The faster they learn their lesson, the easier their lives because for them.
