Collective Suffering

I conducted an online survey to inquire what types of suffering people experience in their lives.

Here are a sampling of results.

Visitors: Feel free to share one of your own sufferings in the comments (anonymous if desired, it goes without saying).

  1. Hey, I am studying in a Engineering college. People tend to think that life in engineering colleges are good one but I would like to tell them something- Imagine your day starting with a class that you don’t wanna attend but have to attend due to attendence compulsion and going through this kind of classes all day. Would you call it a good life?

  2. My deep suffering in my life till this time is the death of my mother and father. My father gave courage to face anything in life courageously and my mother also gave support to face problems patiently. My mother was died 4 months ago and following her death, after 15 days my father was also died of Heart attack, and that was a shocking incident in my life.

  7. As a teenager, I took care of my aunt who needed help after a leg amputation due to cancer. We didn’t realize how quickly her cancer was returning and spreading, and she lost her battle. I was there and saw all of her suffering, from deep, open bed sores, to vomiting black bile as she slipped away. I miss her.
