your own best ways to travel with that pain
will lead you to the joy that you long to have.

and the experiences of others may inspire you,
ultimately it will be the choices you discover
and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy
in the midst of your challenges.

Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love
or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.
