To appreciate something means to be fully aware of the level of its value. Therefore, I do believe we should suffer in order to appreciate life. It's not thrilling; and many things in life have tried to desensitize the masses to recognizing life's value, but I think it's a part of of the cycle.
A spoiled child has difficulty appreciating hard work. A spouse who's always gotten their way in their marriage can cease to appreciate their partner for who she/he is. A little pain goes a long way, oddly enough.
Yes I think we should and I think we have to.
It's only during the bad times that we realise how good the good times are.
the question is not whether we should suffer, but what is suffering.. You must understand the subjective view of the individual to understand what constitutes struggling in their eyes.
Should we suffer? I don't believe anyone should suffer. If we are able to appreciate life without suffering that would be ideal. However, it seems most of us tend to take things for granted until we suffer. From that suffering, hopefully, comes a realization of what we've been missing out on and we start to appreciate life more. My hope is that one day everyone will appreciate life without having to suffer.

What is the ultimate meaning of suffering?In a world without spiritual beliefs or religion, one's suffering does not mean much beyond itself, your predicament is only worsened by this realization that your demolition as a human being will never mean anything, that you suffer for nothing.
