No One Knows

No one knows the troubles I've seen. I believe that's the essense of what Solomon meant by Proverbs 14:10.
The heart knoweth its own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with its joy.
Everyone has his own emotional and spiritual pain thresholds. One person endures the loss of his job, his family, and his health, and carries on. Another person loses an illusion and collapses into substance abuse and cycles of self destruction. We can see who is stronger, but who is to say who suffers the most? Only God can really see the heart; only He knows the real depth and cause of our wounds. Thankfully, He also knows what will bring us the greatest joy. No one else does.
