    I suffer a lot lately and I hated it, but I cannot thank her enough!

    There is a jerk that comes out of me when I suffer, but overall, in the end, it is suffering that makes me more compassionate and kind to others.

    When I take a legal over the counter medicine known as "poor Man's PCP" or alcohol or other chemicals that make fear, depression, sadness, pain, and suffering go away, I lose compassion and can become a total jerk in everybody's face with no boundaries and no consideration of other people and their feelings.

    Suffering helps me identify with the lowly and associated with them and be humble.

    Suffering is my teacher, my mistress, and I cannot keep running from her.

    (There are unhealthy forms of suffering just like there's a unhealthy forms of everything that's good. Too much of a good thing you can be a bad thing!)

    I know we've been through this before at RF but I can't help it. The more insight I receive and the more compassionate I become and the more humble I become is all achieved through suffering!

    Overall, I can't think suffering enough, because without her I'd be the biggest jerk in the world!

    The chorus of that song my mistress sings to me morning and night.

    I'm currently running into the woman that broke my heart and led me to a suicide attempt that broke multiple bones . I run into her roughly 5 times a week. I'm learning to love it!
