In this article, the major findings from a research program exploring the behavioral-experiential nature of suffering are revised and summarized. Suffering is perceived as comprising of two major behavioral states: enduring (in which emotions are suppressed, and is manifested as an emotionless state) and emotional suffering (an overt state of distress in which emotions are released). Individuals who are suffering move back and forth between these two states according to their own needs, their recognition/acknowledgement/acceptance of events, the context, and the needs and responses of others. Implications for the provision of comfort during suffering states are presented
