What is it suffering teaching you?

Suffering has a lot to teach us
What is suffering teaching you? This is a question a few of us ask when suffering from any of the life's struggle. Usually, you blame on others or blame life for all the suffering but, have you asked What is this teaching me? I used to go in living my life always finding someone to blame too. There was no room for looking inside and taking responsibility for my actions.

Until one day after thousands of tears and lonely crying nights it all comes to you like in a tsunami of emotions and precisely when you think there could be no more pain, no more struggle or not more fear, then and only then you have to face all this dilemma and looking yourself in the mirror here comes What is it suffering teaching you? And you can’t face because of all the programming that began in your childhood.

My first experience facing suffering Left me speechless, I literally created an ocean of tears bringing back the memories about the money struggle, my sibling's rejection because I had been born, oh yes do you think that knowing the people closest to you don’t love you does not cause any damage? Well, let me tell you it does cause damage deep damage.

What is it suffering teaching you?
Maybe at this point, you will be saying stop the crap and tell me What is it suffering teaching you? And yes you are right cut to the chase suffering teaches something different to every person for the majority of us is about loving ourselves (at least in my case it was) deep down in my heart I knew I had to forgive others in order for me to be happy or at least  to have a bit of peace of mind. There were some men in my life that didn’t do any good and I knew it but even though that relationships were all about suffering and pain and fear you just keep going thinking that something must be wrong with you.

Those sleepless nights with your mind going around and around of the affairs of the day and when you least expect it then you are back in time when your brother or sister yelled at you “you shouldn.t be here on this Earth, you were not supposed to be born” or your father never showing up at school when everybody’s parents were there watching the festival and laughing and buying cotton candy for them.

What is it suffering teaching you? To love your life, to let go of the past, to be strong even when facing rejection, to allow the little boy or girl that is inside you to come and enjoy life, it teaches you how to go on and don’t care what other people think about you because you have no wounds anymore, because you have healed what was causing you to be away from yourself. There is no reason for keep on suffering when you have learned the lesson.

Pain and suffering won’t stop until you face it until you take responsibility for your own creations. Everything outside of yourself is worthless.
