I alwayse beleived that hashem made people suffer in this world, in order to become better people. i agree it makes sence, but i never understood why hashem is using suffering, to grow? why cant it be something better, something that will make us want to live even more. i see the greatest people suffering and it doesnt make sence to me, because they try so hard to become better and hashem is making it even harder for them.

<3 jews ;)

Hashem also makes people suffer for kapara. let's say a tzadik did sooo little averot and mostly mitzvot his whole life, right? he still has to get punished for the sins he did. he cant just get away with it. so G-d punishes him in this world which is NOTHING compared to getting punished in the next world. so by the time he gets to the next world, he goes strait to olam haba.

Hashem does give us the chance to do teshuvah m'ahava, from love, by sending us good (that we can tell in this world is good) things. But people tend not to react to that. Plus, Rav Miller ztl says that suffering can bring one to greater levels than possible otherwise; and that it could be for the purpose of gettign more benefit form future pleasure, and other reasons.

There are many philosophical reasons why Hashem has us suffer. I don't think anyone can give you a reason why you are suffering. None of us can really feel your intense pain the way you do. The only thing I can say is that we believe that Hashem loves us and loves you very much and that he has a plan which hopefully one day we will understand and appreciate .
