Stories are defined by what happens along the way.
Engaging stories are built on coincidence, surprise, misfortune, obstacles and… suffering. The challenge may be unique, but the struggle to overcome is universal.
The difference between a forgettable experience and a story worth retelling hangs answer to the question: Was the purpose of the journey worth the suffering it incurred?
However, assuming that each journey must scale with suffering is a bit misleading, because there will always be suffering. It's a fact of life, the result of our hard-wiring. We can't change how much we suffer.
So now, the question isn't finding some special path that leads to some optimal balance or to minimize our suffering.
It's to find something that makes any amount of suffering irrelevant.
