Eternal Suffering

by eternaldarkness

Yeah I know life isn’t fair, but why do some people have to suffer so much? Why do some people have to have such bad things happen to them? While others have such easy lives with nothing but good people and goodness surrounding them? Some people have had to struggle their entire lives, while others just worry about about stupid shit like what shoes should they wear to match what dress they’ll wear tomorrow, while some of us have to worry whether we’ll get beaten today or have dinner tonight.

Some of us had to suffer the moment we were born. How can we ever live a normal life when all we are are so broken on the inside, when all we’ve ever known is broken-ness and pain and suffering since the day we were born. When we’ve never known what normal was, or felt love. If all we ever know and feel is pain and suffering, how the hell can we be happy and live a normal fucking life? And only wish for all our pain and suffering and misery to end? I can’t imagine having to live for 70 years (or however long) of this pain.

I agree with you so much. Some people don’t know how lucky they are

The short answer is money (though there are many other possible reasons, this one is key). We live in a Capitalist society, practically everything we do revolves around survival and making money, which determines what sort of job we’ll have and what type of people we’ll be surrounded by.

In trying to acquire an income we start developing behaviors based on how we relate to others. Ultimately the strong dominate the weak, some take out their anger (due to powerlessness) on people who are weaker than them, their kids for instance. It’s a pretty vicious and sick cycle.

And you’re right-some people were fortunate enough to be born with a silver spoon in their mouth or just got a lucky life where everything they do works out to their own benefit so they lead fairly happy, carefree lives.

The rest of us have to work with the cards we were dealt with. Speaking personally if I felt that there was no hope for me, then I would’ve ended my life a long time ago. However I’ve been given skills and opportunities that have kept me going and interested in life. Though some days I really wanted to just end it.

I wish I could give you some uplifting words and say things will get better-but that wouldn’t be honest. Fact is that regardless of how we started in life, ultimately it is up to us to change it. That is what I decided many years ago-I wanted to have a happy life, experience some things I’ve dreamed about when I was younger and then one day I could die with the satisfaction of knowing I’d done the things I wanted to in life.

So despite everything that you’ve suffered through, it still might be possible to get the happiness you desire. It does go back to having a good income which will allow you to afford the things that typically makes one contented.

Even if it doesn’t, it’s still a lot better than being dirt poor. But if you don’t care about living, then that’s a different story-it boils down to finding an effective, safe means to end your life. I hope one day euthanasia is available to anyone for any reason-but till then, we’re forced to rely on ourselves.

I always ask myself why bad people have such a happy easy life. It’s not fair!

Epistemologically speaking, since we have free will then some people are going to get the short end of the stick.

Scientifically, random chance means that some people get the short end of the stick.

According to the Short End of the Stick Lobby, everyone should get the short end of the stick.

The Zen answer is there is no stick. All ends are the same. You attachment to labels for stick ends is what’s causing pain.

The worst part is humans giving other humans the short end of the stick.

“Some of us had to suffer the moment we were born.” True of me too.
