You might feel body pain, no one can understand how painful and how to take away your pain. Difference people might have difference level of pain endurance. Only you know the best on how to handle your pain.
No one will know how hot is the water you are drinking, only you know the best.
Another great example, when you are angry, can anyone take away your anger?
Our great teacher, Buddha, only showing the path of enlightenment, whether you want to keep walking or not, it’s really up to you.
Some of the Buddhists love to bring fruits (e.g. apples, oranges and others) to pay respect to Buddha and follow by praying or wishing for many good things in return, e.g. wealth, health, fame, power and others.
Do you think this is a trading? A few apples to exchange for fulfilment of a long wish list. Moreover, We are going to take home the fruit and eat.
Why not try to understand the teaching of our great teacher?
Keep walking the path with faith and right understanding!
