I'm not suffering any more than usual, beyond the cold. But the nature of life? All life, human anyways, consists of periods of happiness, periods of sadness, periods of comfort, and periods of suffering. All inevitable, regardless of station or standing. Nobody gets to pick their parents, their nation, their genetic traits, their gender, or their sexual inclinations. We get to choose how we respond to these things, how we carry them, how they affect our actions, and the choice is what affects how other people treat us. Whatever station also affectsthat, people get treated differently depending on who their parents are or family is. But it all comes down to exactly the same thing no matter who you are Born, live, die. You bring nothing with you, and you take nothing with you - there are societal expectations, family obligations, whatever, but our obligations are a societal construct. We affect people around us, negativity breeds negativity, hostility hostility, and kindness kindness. What do you think the point, if any, of the human experience is?
