What Suffering Does – NYTimes.com.

I really like David Brooks. In this article, he simultaneously recognizes that suffering–although terrible–can turn out for good. It can mold and shape us into something else, perhaps something better. It can direct our lives toward something greater. I believe suffering can be dangerous and detrimental; but I also believe how I choose to respond to suffering often determines whether or not I become better. I don’t believe suffering always turns out for the worse. Suffering can actually turn out to be┬ábeneficial to us and others. It can be hopeful.
