One way people like to drag each other down is comparing their problems to others and pretending that others have it easy. My response is always – do you think this world doesn’t have some difficult checks and balances? As if some peoples’ struggles don’t exist or aren’t valid?
Sometimes it’s laughable because you have faced a lot and know it. Who is anyone else to question or invalidate that? They’re not anyone or anything to do so.
It’s up to us to learn to love ourselves and our journeys too. Even find the positives in our personal challenges. Use them, don’t let them own you. Love the blood, sweat, and tears you’ve worked through.
Maybe those who are empty or who sell their souls can live completely easy and cushy. The moment you have a soul and a will of your own there will be challenges. There will be obstacles There will be things that try to hold you back. Life gets more complicated.
Go ahead and cry about it. I have, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s the people who deny their emotions and deny their selves who are the biggest assholes because they never get over themselves. Crying or sober, kicking or screaming, it doesn’t matter. Just that you’re challenging your challenges.
The best way to simplify things is to push through and climb your mountains.
Remember that only people who have no minds or souls to challenge have it easy.
