Suffering has opened my eyes and made me more understanding than anything else. As long as you don’t let suffering turn you into a vindictive machine of pure retaliation, suffering can show you various points of view that you otherwise wouldn’t consider.
A former friend’s father shunned her for her sexuality but she was a perfectly kind, sweet person.
Just because someone is different from you doesn’t make you right or them wrong, just different.
Dealt with a very emotional, volatile person in a position of authority.

Lived with egomaniacs.
Most people don’t give a rat’s *** about facts. They just want to feel justified. Many just parrot what their own authority figures said/believed/felt and may not know why they are parrotting it themself.
