You're invited to suffer Anonymous 01/14/2020 (Tue) 15:52:39 Id:fbcb7f No. 11
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Recently I have begun reading "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" by Frederich Nietzsche and the primary message I have taken from is that suffering is only a predisposition to greatness and that those who never truly suffer never truly become great.

Strength is gained through overcoming ones hardships, think about lifting. If you have a hard time lifting a heavy weight but you can successfully lift it you'll be stronger, and eventually the weight will be easier to lift. The same is true for your mentality and emotions.

If you go through an adverse, or challenging experience and you are able to successfully overcome that hardships with it then in the end you'll be a stronger person and you'll be immune to the same experience again.

For me growing up was a challenge. Living in poverty with my 3 siblings our abusive mom a practically nonexistent dad and plenty of traumatic experiences led me into a very adverse adolescence. I was doing drugs, partying, I had made the best of friends with the worst types of people and almost dropped out of high school.

Now I read and exercise regularly. I have a steady and happy relationship with my girlfriend who I plan to marry and have kids with. I have a great relationship with my family, I'm in college with a job lined up once I'm out and most of all I seldomly feel bad or depressed like I used to growing up.

Throughout history our European ancestors have suffered tremendously. The crusades, black plague, the fall of the roman empire and yet no matter how hard their might is tried they always come out on top. The same is true now.

No matter what hardships you guys are going through you must keep going through them because in the end life will be even better. Don't let your ancestors suffering be for nothing. They suffered to create this world for you and you shouldn't let it go to waste. The pain can end here.

Help each other out and share ways you have overcome hardship in your lives and how it has improved you.
