All of Us Suffer

“According to the teachings of Buddha, all of us suffer from our own delusions, and all of us are living in a kind of self-created state of dissatisfaction. This is why compassion is such an important part of Buddhism. Once you realize that just like you, everyone else is struggling too, your heart begins to open, and the annoying, hurtful things that people do start to become less offensive, and more about an opportunity to show compassion.” – Buddhism: A Beginner’s Guidebook
