The truth individuals don’t often like admit to themselves is that the next person has problems too, maybe more than theirs.

For people like this, they feel they deserve the help of the entire universe as they have the biggest problem. They are like…

– Oh man, I failed a test. I don’t feel like eating. There are kids in Africa who die of starvation.

– I can’t run anymore. My legs are dead. You know there are people without legs who’d love to be in your position.

– School is so hard, I am barely getting by. There are millions of people who can’t even afford education.

– I just broke up. I feel depressed. There are people in the world right now who just found out they have cancer.

It is important to be grateful for what you have and where you are. A lot more people will give anything to have a feel of what you feel is inadequate.
