As it was mentioned in class, part of what causes anguish is holding into things, our desires, wanting things to last, wanting life to be otherwise what it is.
A story of a time that I suffered might not be related to my concept of suffering, but it is something that affected me for a while, if not forever. It is something personal to me that happened in 7th grade when I got into a car accident that caused the death of a friend of mine, I was only a passenger, yet I felt responsible. I had so many questions for a while, what if I got into the car early, would it have happened, and my friend lived? What if I told them to stop driving crazy, would I have stopped the accident? The way I dealt with it was by having another desire, leaving everything else behind. I had one desire which was to learn all about content creating, from graphic design, to editing videos and photos, to learning all the 3D software, to even web developing (there was no click and drag website services at the time). I spent many nights learning what others would consider useless things at the time, but what was behind it is that I wanted my mind to be busy with this one and only desire. I pretty much lost all those skills that I gained because it was temporary, but it made my suffering of the death of my friend end, not quite, but it is the one thing that kept me pushing.
