What is pain? Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional… But whatever pain doesn’t kill you, will only make you stronger.

Life is a bitch. It sometimes puts you on top of the world, and then suddenly pulls you way below Tartarus. And sometimes, most people never make it out alive, because they have given up. But more often than not, we survive, and the cycle continues.

In my whole stay during this first year of Medical School in PLM, I have been shattered to pieces twice. Not just shattered, in actuality; also crushed and turned to dust. But in these two moments, I have slowly rebuilt myself and tried to always learn something from the experience in order to grow.

It certainly is difficult to pick yourself up after a fall. The pain is there, the hurt is there, your pride splattered with mud, shame and whatnot. It is so difficult to focus on matters that matter most, and to go on with everyday life. You tend to shun the people you need the most. You tend to try to do a lot of things to keep your mind off the pain.

In the end, you realize that you are not alone. There are people around you who truly are your friends. These people do not care whether you would get mad at them for what they would say; but instead they are there for you. These people uplift your spirit in every single thing they do, and you cannot help but put on a smile.

Smile, they say, because they are always there for you no matter what. And then I realized that I am not alone. They are the reason why I keep reminding myself that:

Pain is inevitable, Suffering is optional; whatever pain doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger.
