If we were unable to feel pain or suffering 

If we were unable to feel pain or suffering, would we feel empathy for others? Would we be compassionate? 
Empathy is a lot about knowing what pain is like, and feeling compassion when watching someone else suffer. So,  what if we felt nothing negative, ever? 
There would be nothing to relate with or understand when seeing someone else suffer, so there would be no feeling of “I need to help, I need to alleviate this person’s pain”.

Best thing to do when you’re sad

Spend time with your darlings. Surround yourself by the things you love and the things that love you back. Cuddle with your cat and have a cup of tea. Listen to your most relaxing music playlist and enjoy the purring. Smile, because after all, you ARE lucky.
