The Suffering Choice


 

Two people, working for the same company, lose their job on the same day. It’s an unrehearsed nightmare. Minds numb with the incessant screaming of gulls, horns and everything else that emits sound with a cochlear breaking decibel level.
 
The first person grabs a bottle of Jack and sits on the edge of the harbour contemplating a full-on dunk. 
 
The second person, walks into the forest, arms reaching for the moon, eyes punctuating that perfect V, as vibrant note emergesm original, innovative, new. 
 
One event.
 
Two different experiences.
 
Shit happens, folks.
 
Disaster strikes.
 
Pain in life is unavoidable.
 
But suffering is a CHOICE.
