It is very important to recognise ourselves in each other for the lives we lead are so intertwined and the experiences we face in life, are not that far apart.
Life is not an easy feat and this is the same for everyone but it is up to us to choose the way these experiences shape our lives and those around us.
A number of religious scholars have shown that our suffering has the main intent of helping others. The Bible says this too, this is seen in 2 Corinthians where it says that ‘who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.’
It is important for human kind to understand this aspect-though hard to comprehend, but our suffering is not personal. It is not that when we suffer, the world is being held against us but somewhat our pain is the best way or rather the means through which God fulfils our destiny and the purpose for which our life is held-which is living for Him.
How we choose to act when faced with problems affects others. If we are resilient, we inspire others to be strong as well. When we choose to find purpose in our suffering, other people learn that it is possible to overcome difficulties.
We need not grow weary from the pain caused by the world for the one who created us can never bring us this far and leave us alone.
The word of God tells us to rejoice in as much as we participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that we may be overjoyed when His glory is revealed (1 Peter 4:12-13).
