” We are human beings after all. We all suffer. We all have our demons. If we didn’t we would be remarkably uninteresting. We wouldn’t innovate. We couldn’t create art. We wouldn’t help one another with the same sense of compassion and empathy. Thank god for our small quirks, neuroses and sufferings! They teach us wonderful lessons.
Our demons exist for a reason. Most of the time we suffer as a learning opportunity. We have obstacles to push past chaos to breathe through. We suffer from poor body image so we can learn to exercise and respect our bodies. We suffer from bad relationships so we can exterminate the lies and egoism in ourselves. We suffer from terrible jobs so we can learn to have the courage and honesty to find something valuable to do in life. “
