Judging other’s suffering #buddhism #suffering #mindfulness

“Everyone experiences suffering differently,

regardless of their ‘reason’ for suffering.

Never say that another person

has no right to complain,

because other people,

under worse circumstances,

have more of a reason for suffering,

Never say

that your circumstances,

are far worse than another’s,

that you alone

have a right to complain

of your suffering.”

Advice from my friend’s parent,

a survivor of Birkenau,

to my friend,

throughout her childhood.
