Worse than what?
It doesn't matter!!! Someone out there has it worse so be grateful for what you have!
You know what?
No. I want to talk about that phrase.
I hate it. So much.
Someone will always have it worse. There will always be someone with less support, less money, or (God forbid) loss in the family.
Don't let that invalidate how you feel.
Your feelings are valid. You're allowed to feel upset. You're allowed to vent about. It's okay to cry over "the little things" and feel horribly upset about "first world problems."
It's NOT okay to tell someone to suck it up because "someone has it worse."
You have my permission to punch them in the mouth and then tell them to "be grateful" you didn't break their nose instead.*
Just don't be offended if I hide your post.
If taking time to express your feelings means that you're ungrateful?
Then I'm ungrateful.
And that's okay.
