Why are you so down? So and so has it much worse off than you. You’re lucky.
But it’s not a competition. Everyone has issues, however our breaking points are not the same. What may seem a trivial obstacle from our perspective, might be another’s brick wall.
I fall into the trap myself. The ladies who lunch come in and bemoan their busy schedules. I want to roll my eyes and say “You have so much. How can you be unhappy?”
Your feelings are your feelings. And it’s okay to feel them.
We need to remember to honor each other. Offer understanding. Validation. Peace.
And at the same time encourage improvement. What can you do to feel better?
