The nature of the obstacles that we encounter should be of no concern; some are easier to overcome, others much more challenging, painful at times.
But it is never a good idea, nor a useful one, to measure our suffering with the suffering of others. For it is the very essence of overcoming obstacles, that makes us equal and worthy of living in grace and serenity here on earth.
I wrote this book to offer strength via my personal experience, but I also wrote this book for myself – to remember what I have learned when the road will become steep again.
