—“Did you ever read Aeschylus’ “Agamemnon”? Some things can only be learned by suffering–enduring the consequences of your agency.”—Chip Sills
This kind of conflation of heroic effort with suffering is a christian mental disease. if it is some kind of suffering for you then you are mentally, physically, emotionally unfit or inferior…
its just work.
cancer, serious illness, pain, divorce, loss, this is not suffering but endurance.
suffering is loss regardless of action. all else is work.
If you make the choice it may be Work to achieve or Tragedy to fail to achieve, but Suffering is due to that which is beyond your actions.
