"To live is to suffer. To survive is to find meaning in the suffering."Nietzsche
Have compassion for those who are suffering - because addicts truly are living in hell and just need a compassionate helping hand to make it out. Yes, they hurt other people - but it's because they are hurting so badly themselves.
Don't stand up for those who are unwilling to help themselves...
"It takes courage to live through suffering; and it takes honesty to observe it." -C.S. Lewis
Pain is inevitable, as are stressors; Suffering is optional. Avoidance and rumination are unhelpful and unnecessary. Acceptance allows problem-solving and peace.
