Why We Suffer

Share a personal experience of noticing how the mind can be a very dangerous place.

  • Bisola says:

    I want to run away from the thoughts that keep running through my head but they seem to run a lot faster than me

  • Nancy says:

    My mind tells me I can’t keep up with my friends. I will slowly be isolated in my home. I should be ashamed because I didn’t make a lot of money last year. My boyfriend is disappointed in me. It is full of negative attack thoughts.

  • Andrea says:

    Ruminating thoughts of a failed 35 year friendship

  • Bev says:

    I have been troubled by my mind since being a child. It’s full of anxiety and fear. Feelings of guilt and low self worth have haunted me all my life.

  • Joe says:

    being in a bad relationship and not having the will to leave it because of fear of being alone.

  • David says:

    Running in the background is often a worry about being judged. This mental activity is subtle, but it wears you down. For me, it has contributed to shutting down versus allowing myself to remain open to possibilities.

  • Shaan says:

    My mind was a very dangerous place, I have experienced several traumatic events in the past and the mind would pull me back to those experiences so frequently and trap me in a mental loop of suffering, it led me to anxiety, depression and schizophrenia and eventually attempting suicide.

  • Radiance says:

    Last week I was in a suffering state. My mind told me that there were too many people stuck in our little house all the time and I am going crazy having them in my space 24/7. I was also down on myself because I was laid off in March and got rejected for two positions which I applied and went through 3 rounds of interviews for each one. After a long weekend of suffering, I realized I needed to elevate my state and stop allowing my fears to control my life. Once I made that decision, the world seem to instantly changed. I realized how grateful I am to have my kids, husband and in-laws during this pandemic, grateful we are all safe and healthy, and grateful we have the financial means to weather this storm. Once I accepted the circumstances, then I was able to breathe, release all the suffering, and move back to a beautiful state.

  • Darren says:

    Past traumas constantly being revisited in my mind. telling myself i cant do things, things will go wrong, i am not as good as him/her so i wont even bother etc…

  • George Armstrong says:

    The feeling of not deserving to be happy. sabotaging myself.

  • Andi says:

    My mind makes me widhdaw and get away from people because I get overwhelmed

    • Quail says:

      just because our current culture worships the extrovert, hold your head up. Zero need to pretend and join the crowd.

  • SL says:

    My mind is constantly bringing up negative things that have happened in my relationship and tries to convince me now that my boyfriend isn’t good enough despite all his great attributes

  • Rahul says:

    That I won’t be able to live the way I want to live and be in my life.

  • Michael says:

    I had/have negative thoughts and accusations toward a certain person. Kind of obsessive ones. Intrestingly this hate did not arise in the presence of her, but when I was alone, with no one around me. On the contrary, in the presence of her I felt deep sympathy.
    Isn’t that weird?

  • Annalisa says:

    When irritation became anger so quickly that you don’t even think about it anymore
    It’s so frustrating

  • S says:

    I blame myself again and again for my ex’s suicide. Constantly filled with regret, guilt, and sadness. I currently have chronic headaches and chest pain.

    • Christa says:

      Thank you for sharing such a personal experience. As we just learned from the above talk, it is one’s mind out of control that causes suffering. So your ex’s mind caused the suffering and suicide; you could not have been the cause. Also, I suffered from chest pains for many years and was filled with anxiety and sadness. I am healed of those pains completely now. I still have plenty to learn about the ‘letting go’ of the mind, but it is a wonderful journey. You will be free of this too. I can tell from your honesty that you are a beautiful person.

  • Shelley says:

    I dont even realize that I’m thinking negative. I carry guilt from my past. I long to get to a personal experience with God the holy spirit but I am all emotion and feel that I have no control. I dont know how to get there. I hear others saying they hear that inner voice. I never do… I go on all emotions and they are everywhere. Stress and anxiety control me.

    • Quail says:

      you made me smile – if I hear one more story about the average joe finding that moment of enlightenment, or about how they dreamed about the cosmos and divine love – I’m going straight to the depression ward. No voices, no messages in a dream for me – feeling pretty left out, thanks. not giving up, but glad I’m not the only one.

  • Tori says:

    Having doubts when new opportunities arise

  • Gayle says:

    My mind never shuts off. It constantly thinks the “what if’s “ and worst case scenarios of any and all situations.

  • Nicole says:

    My mind took over my life ending in a painful divorce from my husband and best friend. It was almost like watching a horror movie unfold in front of my eyes. I listened and in the end I suffered.

  • Jessica says:

    I allow my mind to believe and reinforce my inadequacy as a mother.

  • Nora says:

    My mind always takes me back to painfully rejection experiences that I’ve had as a child. I started to notice that my mind sabotages my relationships by making me think that I’m not worthy.

  • Serge says:

    I have to do so many things, but I don’t have enough time

  • Heather Braun says:

    I have found that the mind is a great practical tool but is not my friend on an emotional or spiritual level. The Heart knows best. 🙏 💜🙏

  • Jose says:

    I Battle every day with emotions and thoughts I’m not good enough and talking negative to my self as well.

  • Natalie says:

    when I am tired, especially, almost all my thoughts about people, whether I love them or not are extremely negative. I have learned to just accept that if I am tired (I have a fatigue problem) just to know that it is all nonsense

  • Art says:

    In my experience it has cause great anxiety and feelings of depression. Telling me that it’s going to be like this forever. That I’ve been thinking like this for so long. That I cannot be present.

  • Mariela says:

    Trying to be in control in a relationship, wanting to be loved at all times without really paying attention to the other persons feelings

  • Patti says:

    I’m not successful enough and feel I haven’t proved myself where I should actually be and I’m so far away. I feel I’m almost there and sabotage myself time and time again. Afraid of failure and yet I’m walking into it when my success path is right in front of me.

  • Sarah F says:

    PTSD triggers from deaths and War frontline traumas. On Healing journey now…

  • Tori says:

    My mind is always a list of what I need to do, what I didn’t do, what should happen, what did not happen or how can I control my outside world, it’s exhausting.

  • Bonnie Keffler says:

    I believe that we get what we think about and what we talk about . So I am trying to be more mindful with each passing minute throughout my day.
    I am really looking forward to going a bit deeper , beyond the thinking mind.
    I’m thankful for this opportunity to learn and grow to the next level.

  • MB says:

    I under estimate my accomplishments.

  • Steve says:

    For much of my life I’ve lived with anger and regret regarding the past.

  • carrie says:

    That I CANT DO IT.

  • carrie says:


  • Sharon G says:

    i have always struggled with feelings of being less than, with feelings of low self-worth…my mind constantly telling me I have to be better…and do better and be perfect so that people will accept me. My mind is wired with the central core belief that there is something wrong with me. This led me down the path of addiction as this seemed to be the only tool I had for quieting my mind and distracting myself from these painful messages. After a long journey with addiction i came to a bottom and started on the road to recovery which has involved letting lo and letting God and not believing what my mind is telling me

    • Darlene B Lowe says:

      I wish you good health & strength. I made a choice to not allow substances to control me. I pray you can reach this plateau. You saw how strong your addiction was, now use that strength to defeat it. It’s a wonderful thing to treat your body like a temple. Our bodies are miraculous. It’s a gift, please use it wisely.

  • Rashid says:

    My mind can go to very dark places about money and people to the point of causing myself anxiety.

  • Sophie says:

    I wake up thinking about alll the stuff I have to do

  • Danielle says:

    Getting so identified with my thoughts that it just becomes so normal to be worrying and doubting and thinking this is me. Ambient noise all the time. Deep attachments to certain sensitivities.. Also having enjoyable thoughts….but so many THOUGHTS all the time. This is my addiction.

  • A says:

    Allow my mind to tell me there is always something to fix

  • Andrew says:

    My mind at times tells me to end it all. Plus it will present many physical triggers for me too

  • Sarah says:

    My mind tells me daily that I need to be quiet and not speak my mind. It’s such a lie and I know it. Why do I listen to it??

    • Quail says:

      interesting – you put a voice to what i feel.. thanks for sharing.. Alone I’m bright and amazing, Around other people the light goes out. Look forward to sharing the course with you.

  • Lucy says:

    My mind can keep me in all sorts of negative feedback loops, mostly relating to low self worth. When I’m feeling disturbed inside, my mind can tells me I’m not good at my job, that other colleagues are like more than I am, that I’ll never find a partner and I’ll miss my chance to have a family, that I haven’t done anything meaningful or worthwhile with my life etc etc etc ….

    • Ross says:

      Hi Lucy,
      As writers like Dr Wayne Dyer have said, and I’m paraphrasing, you’re here for a reason; you’re living a unique life and you are on purpose. You’re where you need to be for something amazing to start happening, you just need to open your eyes and heart to it and slow that over-acting and over-reactive mind down and start to draw in fresh air to invigorate the brand new you: the you that was always there: you just didn’t see it. Tomorrow is a brand new day; meet it and greet it fully with all your authentic heart. We’re all on your side.

  • Shirly says:

    My mind likes to pull me back into the past stories, repeating patterns of (conditioned) thinking and beliefs. I feel like I am being pulled back each time I try to move forward.

  • Lisa says:

    I allow my mind to underestimate myself into believing I’m not good enough.

  • Kim says:

    A series of deep, unprocessed emotional traumas that led to a Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosis.

    • Darlene B Lowe says:

      I have numerous unresolved, unprocessed traumas that can never be resolved. I keep telling myself “stop, no sense in crying over spilt milk. Tried burning papers of journals & tears with no success. Thought shock treatment. Tried numerous anti anxiety/depression meds. Thoughts of blowing my head off to shut the noise.
      A good cry &. counting ones blessings. & within a few days I’m better I hope I can learn new technique

      • Carlo says:

        Darlene, I’m so sorry to hear that that things have been difficult for you, and I sincerely hope that you will find a way to mitigate your pain and lead a more fulfilling life.. Do know that the world needs you and all the unique gifts you (and only you!) have to offer. Best wishes to you!

      • Susan says:

        Hang in there! I believe God or source or whatever you call your higher power has bought you to this series for the healing you need. You are in the perfect place with the perfect opportunity for healing!

      • Nicolas Sebastian Massu says:

        I can relate to that myself. I Nicolas feel frustrated with my my Bipolar and ADHD and also the fact that I speak to fast for people to understand either in Spanish or my English. I have bought programs from the Singing Zone , Tapping Solution, Steve G. Jones Clinical Hypnotherapist and many other organizations without getting any better. IT’s that constant chatter that tells me to buy more products online to help me deal with what I just said from my health. I have seen people far worse that I am and they seem happy working. I have been working with people with disabilities as an employee since August 2005 and I continued to this day. I admired a guy that is blind both ayes and still works on the workshop I was working with him. So if he can do it all I need is a little guidance to help me fix that chatter that helps me stay where i am now. I just like to comment that I was born in Chile on the 27 of June 1984 and I emigrated to Western Australia in April 2000. Thanks for reading this comment and I hope that it resonated with people.

        • reb says:

          Sometimes we need help from directly working with a specialist. We can only see and help ourselves so much, we need the sight, kowledge, and guidance of others. Do you feel it is time after all the work and programs you’ve done to ask for some direct help?

      • Kathryn says:

        Be gentle with yourself, Darlene. 🔆😇 🌏 🙏 🌺

    • Zoufy says:

      Heey Kim how? I happen to had the same in life and am over it by Mindtraining and Food If you like to learn contact me…. I had to be 50 to see some way out and am now 10 years in … Bliss

      • Debbie says:

        I’d love to get any advise from you! I’m finally conquering a 12 year battle with chronic and severe neck pain. I just learned about body scans and deep breathing meditations, which works wonders! I’m 41 and essentially starting over.

        • Maureen says:

          Debbie.. Who or what is the pain in the neck.? Express your feeling to release the pain. Say you are angry when you are.

    • Melissa says:

      I too have RA. Have you found the yet? It is a safe, effective treatment for Rheumatic illness using antibiotic protocols. Please check it out.

  • April says:

    Allowing my experiences and feelings to measure my worth in life.

  • Annie says:

    I can wake up in a cloud of uninspired limiting confusion and be caught in it all day without finding the will to transcend it

    • Rahul says:

      I have the same experience many times.

    • PS says:

      Same experience.

    • Shoshanah Boquer says:

      Thank you for sharing that, Annie. I have been struggling with something similar for the last three years, except I knew to drum up the will, force myself, everyday in order to get up; that exhausted me and I couldn’t find the transcendence until now; the struggle also caused me to try to give up or I thought of giving up. Something totally contrary to my nature. Sad.
