“The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt.”
This quote will seem a bit complicated and relatively confusing when you read it for the first time. I must admit that I didn’t really relate to it in any way the first time I finished reading it. Then, it made sense to me! It is simply so similar to the main reason for my blog and my “pessimistic” and rather “unpleasant” posts!
In a way, I do realize that suffering, in any form, is inevitable! I know though that the level and deepness of suffering varies from one person to another and from one situation to the other.
Therefore, and indirectly, my blog is a proof of the value of this quote. If you have been hurt and do expect to get hurt again then you do not waste your time fearing that moment to come, you sway along this life carefully yet with more “guts”!
Does this make any sense to you?
