There are two kinds of suffering. Suffering imposed on us by the outside and suffering created by ourselves. All we can do with suffering imposed by the outside is share it in the human family and show compassion, love and empathy for those who’ve been hurt.
Where does this admonition come from? It is usually directed at someone who goes public with their sexuality, greed, gluttony, relentless need for attention etc. We diagnose and identify sociopaths by their inability to feel guilt as well as their incapacity for shame in many areas of their lives.
