I think you’re right and pain is inevitable in this life and this world. But I do hope that by recognizing the pain we can make it livable or in some cases even sooth it. How we deal with what life hands us, that’s the point, I think. Often we make things worse, getting tangled up in a snare we could gently undo if we calmed down enough to study it. To quote Murakami:
“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”
