The horrible truth is some emotional suffering is our own fault. We only suffer when reality does not meet expectations. Our highly developed brain often is the cause for this suffering. As humans we regret the past, don’t enjoy the present, and worry about the future. We suffer because we are not content with what we have, yet do not work toward what we want. This is self-inflicted suffering. Which is sad, troublesome, and also hopeful. If our brain and thoughts are the root cause of our suffering, that means it can also help to erase it. What we focus on, is what will grow. We can reshape our brain as we reshape what we think about, on purpose. Focus on the good, focus on gratitude, focus on others. Suffering goes away when a content heart is helping others.
