Everybody Hurts

Posted 02-02-2015 at 12:31 PM by tookaleft (Real Life Adventures of a Girl Who Should Have Known Better)

The Buddha said that "life is suffering." He didn't mean that life is awful and we are always miserable, but rather that in life, suffering happens. Pain happens. Buddhists believe that it's important to accept that state and realize that the hurt one feels is impermanent and fleeting.

I think that the Buddhist outlook is a wise one; however, I am very, very bad at certain kinds of hurting.

Right now, I am in pain; withdrawing from methadone is not a picnic....
