Someone said to me, "Gennifer, without suffering, there would be no compassion in this world."
I looked at them, a tear fell down my cheek and I replied,
"I would rather live in a world without compassion as to have my world without suffering. I would rather rely on my empathy and sympathy to guide me through the times where there was once compassion. There are many ways to feel compassion, but only one way to feel suffering."
