Do you know what really frustrates me? When people belittle other people’s problems just because they or someone they know is going through something worse. With everything going on in the world a lot of people seem to think that if your problem is smaller than the person next to you then it doesn’t matter as much. Can we please stop doing that? Can we please acknowledge that everyone’s problems are important? Everyone’s problems are different and to you it might seem small – but to them it could be everything.
When someone tells you about something that is going on it is not your cue to tell them that your life is worse. It is not the time to tell them that they’re lucky that’s all they have to worry about. Life is not a competition. Everyone has different problems and everyone’s problems are important to them.
On the other hand, your problem might be the most important thing in the world to you but might not be on another person’s radar. I know it’s frustrating when you tell someone something and they don’t seem interested. However they might also be going through something so try not to be too hard on them either.
I know that it can be frustrating when someone is going on about something that you find trivial and all you want to do is tell them that things could be worse. Yes, they could be but they could also be better. Let’s work together to help each other to overcome our problems instead of trying to compete for who has the biggest one.
I know that this post has been a bit rambly (I don’t think that’s a word…but it should be!). I just really needed to say these things. I know that I am guilty of doing this. If someone tells me what’s going on in their life it’s easy for me to think that I have bigger problems. But to that person what they are going through is the most important thing to them.
So there’s just my rant for the day! If you have anything that you need a good rant about leave it in the comments below!
