" [During the Day of Judgement] ... a person from amongst the persons of the world who had led the most miserable life (in the world) would be brought up from amongst those deserving of paradise. And he would be made to dip once in Paradise and it would be said to him: “O, son of Adam, did you face, any hardship? Or had any distress fallen to your lot?” And he would say: “By Allah, no, O my Lord, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.’" Sahih Muslim, Book #039, Hadith #6738
Bottom Point: The pain in this world is so relatively miniscule that when a follower of God enters Paradise, it is like he never experienced pain on this Earth.
