And I am intrigued at why you would include, "abstaining from adultery" as a cause of suffering. Rather the reverse in my experience. It brings great; joy, peace, and contentment; but as far as i can appreciate or experience, no form of suffering.
I interpret the OP to be saying at times in the course of a life time you may suffer. It is a part of the human condition. Like it or not. There will be things in life that are painful, that suck, that one will have to endure or get through or live with. And maybe sometimes 'no suffering strategies' may help, but maybe they won't. In fact, I have encountered a few experiences in my life that were just dang gum awful and I suffered for a while as part of a natural grieving process. It is the reality of life, it comes with life at times. Accepting that is what helps me. I cannot avoid or deny it all. At times, to be honest-- I have had to face the experiences for what they were and at times I have suffered and I bet I will suffer again before my time is up and I can live with that. I'll manage. When my sister was murdered there was no other way to be but in pain. It was a natural reaction to such a loss. One of the stages was extreme pain and suffering at the loss.
