By the way we face unavoidable suffering

When we cannot avoid suffering or change an adverse situation despite every possible effort to do so, there is only thing left to do. We must suffer bravely with dignity. Suffering is difficult.

But as Frankl wisely put it, “Suffering ceases to be suffering the moment we find a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice.”

Are we becoming all that we can be for the sake of someone or something? What meaning can we create for our lives?
