Everyone and I mean everyone goes through their own level of pain. But actually that’s precisely how we perceive it, as a “level,” although we shouldn’t. In reality there is no scale for these kinds of concepts as pain and feelings. Everyone’s situation is so unique and complex that no one can say “it’s not as bad for you” simply because they are not the recipient of that sort of pain. God has created us so articulately that every individual has a different threshold for pain and accordingly the test and hardship they will face is determined for them. That’s why I’m here to apologize for ever undermining anyone’s situation by saying that there are worst situations I have known. But I will stress upon the fact that we should learn about those other situations because it only makes us grateful for what we have rather than wishing for what we don’t have.
I truly believe that there are no levels to pain. Pain has no extremes. Pain is there whether it is over a heartbreak or over the loss of a child. God’s glory is in that He doesn’t give anyone more pain than they can already handle. Thus all pain is equal and no one is tested beyond their limits. He balances pain and person. We just need to build our character and develop our habits to be able to heal our pain rather than suffer from it.
