"People who've never suffered haven't yet developed an ability to utilize their own creativity to solve a challenging situation. An analogy would be that of a person who has fallen into a well. After many attempts of trying to climb out of the well, they develop strength, ingenuity. That is what many are doing on this earth. However, devastating struggle is always karmic. It might seem karmic if one has had a bad day or week. However, "little suffering" is for the purpose of building character and inner trust. On the other hand, "extreme suffering" for no apparent reason is an indication one is dealing with big karma."
