To know what it is to suffer is to know the very essence of what makes us human. When you're forced to touch this, it's up to you what you do with it. It is more than a choice, it is an ongoing choosing, to continue to use your suffering to hold the suffering of others instead of making you hard and cold. Give kindness not because of what you've been told or what you hope to receive. It can only come from the same place that experienced all that pain. And then, it becomes a beautiful power that no suffering can ever truly take from you.
