A Quote by unknown on suffering and transcendence

Some suffering is unavoidable, and gracefully embracing it can build a stronger awareness and provide wisdom... but other suffering is self-inflicted, and therefore avoidable. The simple idea that no one can truly hurt you unless you first give them permission, either via empowering their hurtful words or failing to recognize all of the other factors that influence their actions (your actual worthiness and value and person being the least of these influences, in reality).
