Suffering is inevitable. There is not a single person in this world that has not experienced suffering in his or her life. Therefore, it is evident that we have to perceive suffering as an experience that teaches us a lesson. What appears to be a great suffering fro some will be taken lightly and a stepping stone by others. Joseph Addison rightly says, “A misery is not to be measured from the nature of the evil but from the temper of the sufferer”. We get to practise patience and perseverance during the course of the suffering which gives us more courage and determination to face any kind of situation in the future. In this context it would be apt to quote Thucydides who sys “the sufferings that fate inflicts on us should be borne with patience what enemies inflict with manly courage “.
