Suffering is one of the guides of our everyday lives, who we meet in relation to pain, anxiety, fear, despair, loneliness, feeling of guilt but also carelessness, neglect or cruelty, recklessness and everything which incite it. Suffering makes an assumption for a specific way of man´s self-expression and also makes presumption for free decision how to give his life a reason and which attitude he chooses towards it. Except for its physiology, psychology, suffering has also its epistemology because it refers us to a way of thinking about the world. In suffering is based the original experience of the world which helps the man understand the world. The experience of suffering reveals us also those aspects of human life which are hidden from our rationality and to which we get with rather intuition, introspection than with logic of our thinking. Also other virtues of man are born in suffering. In it we recognize more deeply and more sensitively, evaluate more consistently and act more responsibly. In suffering the man does not only exists but also exceeds beyond himself and makes our world more human.
