Thank you Ian. Yes you are correct in saying: “ some significant measure of suffering is self-inflicted.” I’m reminded of the passage: “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.” Yet the degree to which each person suffers varies. Therefore, self-compassion and nurturing equanimity in ourselves should be our foremost priority in such times.
