I believe that pain forces people into one of two attitudes:

It can humble us and enlarge our compassion for others, whose pain we had not previously comprehended.

Or it can lead to bitterness, self-pity, envy, and the seeking for company in misery.

Christ is the example of the first.  Lucifer is the example of the second.

See Alma 62:41.
