That said, are there times in our life where enduring is necessary? Yes!
I think of enduring through my college physics course in order to graduate on time, or enduring through the cold baths I began doing for my mental and physical wellbeing. Sometimes we have to suffer in order to grow!
But have you ever found yourself suffering simply because you thought you had to? That there was no other options than to endure?
I’ve found myself there often in my life- especially in my career and even relationships. Like jobs where managers insist on having you close than reopen the store the next day- and not as a one off, but as a regular occurrence- or where managers get off on putting you down. These periods of enduring begin so slowly, you think “well that day sucked, but surely this won’t last forever”, but before you know it it’s become a reality you’re suffering very patiently though.
