I do. When I see and read about all that is going on in the world, I consider myself very fortunate.
You know when you think you have a problem? But then you see someone else in a worse situation ? and it makes you realize Your issue isn't that bad? Do you ever feel that way? I do.
It still would make no difference to me. The situation affects us in a negative way regardless.
Dear Megan Goodgirl,
Yes I have given some thought there...and I really have come to believe that somehow we humankind tend to focus on the difficulties, and take the positives for granted...at least until we see someone in a worse situation.

And that does not need to be a bad thing, because it is important to understand what is going wrong. So more and more, what I am trying is just to see the negatives clearly, then decide what if anything I can do about it - without letting the negatives make me unhappy.
Just so you know, my brother was in this situation. My husband was in Qatar, but never left the post, so he wasn't carrying around all that equipment.
Yes i live in a small rv trailer but at least im not homeless not doing drugs and i have my best buddy motormouth kitty. So i have it pretty good
There's two factor here.
1.Nobody on this earth is erased of problems. Problems are with everyone. From a worker to president, everyone dealing with many small and big problems. And each person's problem is carrying it's own weight and impact.
2.Each person's level of taking the problems are different. To someone pain means poking a needle through skin. To someone a real pain is having a knife digging the flesh out. This doesn't mean the person who feel the pain with the needle is unaware of what the pain is. That's his level of pain. We all take pain differently so as the problems.
My worst condition is different from someone else. No one's worst is upon or less than the other. Our worst is entitled to our own strength and defined as how we can take it.
However, i do believe what you've experienced exist in a very obvious way, some people never know how their strength is challenging unless they observe the challenges that others battling with. Then they feel much stronger and comfortable. Cause they feel what other's are battling with is more harsh than what they were complaining about.
Every once in a while, yes.
But I try not to fall into the trap of feeling guilty when I am dealt a really, really good hand.
Both I and the person I am comparing myself with have unique conditions associated with our existences.
I figure there is a reason for that, even if I don't know what it is.
So I try to do that "bloom where you are planted" thing.
Some of us just live in different biomes.
And we deal with what's there.
