Don't choose to suffer for the wrong thing.
Suffering for what is important and of value is one thing, but to suffer for what is not important and of little value is is to suffer for the wrong thing and is suffering in vain.
People are the most important thing on earth. This is borne out by the fact that that God saw fit to send Jesus to redeem mankind, therefore to suffer for people is valour.
There are far to many people suffering in vain!
