Suffering can humble you. It can make you realize how small you really are. The fact that a tiny being like a virus or bacteria can over power your body and overwhelm you with pain is in my eyes, proof of that. I am no better or worse than this little creature reaping havoc inside of me. It makes a thing like pride pointless. And everything else we feel so minuscule. Times like this I feel the honesty of myself and the universe swallow me. It is humbling to suffer. In suffering we lose our ego. – Valexia Zianna.
