The Daily Vulnerable: Love and suffering

By David-salt Ayodele

Recently, I have found myself unconsciously evaluating my past romantic relationships and why they ended.

I found peace when I stopped blaming myself for being me, just picking up lessons, reaching out as friends and moving on without hurt.

Then I came across a tweet that reminded me of these words attributed to Wooden Allen.

“To love is to suffer. 

To avoid suffering one must not love.

But then one suffers from not loving.

Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer

To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy”

It’s all said.
