So, in my relationships with men, I've always sought suffering, conflict, and despair.
Suffering occurs when we want other people to love us in the way we imagine we want to be loved, and not in the way that love should manifest itself--free and untrammeled, guiding us with its force and driving us on.
It is by suffering that human beings become angels.
For who would dare to assert that eternal happiness can compensate for a single moment's human suffering
Suffering can bend.
But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.
