Happiness and sadness are the two threads from which, the fabric of life is woven. Every moment of happiness comes from attachment of some kind and, therefore, has the roots of future sadness in it. Sadness and pain are perpetual companions for some of us.
Pain toughens some of us, breaks some, and teach us humility, while making us abundantly conscious of our mortal status. The ability to feel pain is what makes us human.
