The mind does not tell the difference between suffer and pain.
The truth is that pain and suffer are two different things. Pain (emotional or physical) is a feeling, a feeling of a thing undesirable that is there in the body or in the psyche, a thing that inflicts a feeling of pain (a painful emotion, an injury etc.) while suffering is our response out of identification with the pain. Watch it and you will see the difference by yourself.
