    It sounds like you have dealt extremely well with mental strength, personally and as a counsellor. All these are based upon belief in God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit, found in the Bible’s New Testament. If you look, you will find this. I have found the same resources there.

  14. Life is suffering.
    ~The Buddha

    The root of suffering is attachment.
    ~The Buddha

    You will go thru suffering in life. It’s inevitable. What are you going to do about it? This is where meditation and looking inward is so valuable. Stop looking at what society says is important. Look inward. Be proactive. Read. Stop watching TV. Stop wasting time.
