Pain & Suffering
The real question we must ask is not just why we sometimes feel such acute pain, but what we are meant to learn from it.
What have I done to deserve this? And how can I make it stop? Sometimes the pain seems to be insurmountable, the suffering cruel in its intensity. But why – I am a good person! I try so hard and yet I am hit again and again with such hurt – the loss of a loved one, a broken relationship, a suffering child. Why would a good G-d allow something like this to happen? Does G-d not cry, as I do? Does G-d not feel pain, as I do? What can I do to make it go away?
Why is it so easy for a person to judge another? Who gave us that right? Judgmentalism is a product of shallow and superficial attitudes.
