“I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won’t tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn’t change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.”
— Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
nothing sounds and feels as true as this. sometimes we feel that we shouldn’t feel bad because other’s have it worse, but that doesn’t make it better on our part. sometimes it just makes us feel a little guilty for feeling the way we do. it’s okay to feel bad about our situations. it’s okay to admit that something is wrong when there is, and it’s okay to talk about it.we should just never make our problems our main focus and get so caught up in our own world that we end up making the decision not to live life, when others don’t have the privilege to make that choice. sometimes that’s hard, but it’s the moving forward that should be the centre of our attention. and maybe, in that moving forward we help ourselves enough to one day help that starving person in China or where ever.
