    Lately I've been dealing with laziness

    and no inspiration in my life. I feel lost like I have no drive at all to do anything, even the simple things. I just wanna give up on life. You know it's bad when you can't do what you love anymore.

    Life'S Suffering.

    Not being able to understand our suffering is the worst kind of suffering there is. It is far worse than physical pain.And the reason why we don't understand our suffering, is often because we don't know what we are living for in the first place.
