i’d have thought it was the other way around lol

suffering causes a person to be more understanding and empathetic with others who suffer and I believe it helps me to know I need God which is a good thing. That’s if suffering doesn’t make me bitter first, which it can sometimes do, unfortunately.

I believe that when I suffer I do it for God. He knows my pain and therefore comforts me when I suffer. So I accept the suffering with the good things in my life and count my blessings every day.

Nietszche said “that which doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”. I don’t agree. It is possible to be crippled without being killed.

I feel I’ve gained more empathy, and less hostility towards others. I’ve also learned a very valuable lesson of… be content.

I’ve learned how to be content. I’ve met so many people who are told to never be content… is something if flawed, cast it aside… no moment is perfect, no person is good enough, no effort is correct… nothing is ever good enough…

Through my suffering and how low I was… I have learned that yes, some things are in fact, perfect.

We suffer because of no choice. No one want to suffer if given the choice. Suffering can have two types: Deadly or not deadly. Most inhuman treatment can put sufferer to death. As a schizophrenic, unless we listen to the voice and act on it (i.e. commit suicide), we are safe. Nonetheless, we suffer because of a tormented mind, and that can cause great pain.
Back to the original question: What good things can I take from suffering? My answer is: None.

we all suffer, it doesn’t matter what we do or what religion we are we will still suffer, but its all about keeping that suffering to a minimum and comforting bc we all need some comfort in our lives

No pain no gain…

Usually I write an essay on these sorts of questions. I think what I said is enough.
