Pain vs Suffering

Hi coaches,

I have this question after listening to today’s podcast from Brooke: is Pain a Circumstance or a Feeling? Which of the following models you think is correct?


C: Children dying
T: Children shouldn’t die
F: Pain
A: Keep thinking “I shouldn’t feel this pain” => But then, it’s not an Action but a Thought
R: Emotional suffering


C: Pain => But I associate Pain more with a consequence, a feeling, than a circumstance because not everyone will have pain over the fact that children are dying
T: I shouldn’t feel pain over this
F: Suffering
A: Inaction?
R: More suffering?
