543. Suffering and Pressure

Suffering and pressure are taught to be avoided. 

We want a comfortable life, right? 

But comfort doesn’t cause growth 

While suffering and pressure force growth. 

One is inevitable, the other doesn’t happen. 

And we can use suffering and pressure through self-infliction – putting ourselves intentionally in situations where this is the effect 

Or suffering and pressure can be from external factors, rent due, being overweight, grieving

Maybe we can’t choose the external things, but we can prepare for them through self inflection 

Making the hard times a little less hard.
