I seriously get annoyed when people tell you how much your problems don’t matter as compared to others’. Yes objectively and in the grand scheme of things, your problems might be just peanuts to others’, your problems might not be matters of life and death, but people who say your problems don’t matter are not you, they’re neither physically nor emotionally involved in those problems – they know your stories but they are not in them. They’ve not gone through the magnitude of your pain, bitterness, frustration and other emotionally debilitating negative feelings. So really, who are they to prejudge and surmise that you are just being silly?
So let’s not be judgmental towards other people lah. Most importantly, don’t feel bad when people tell you how your problems are seemingly petty and bear no significance whatsoever. You have all the rights in the world to feel frustrated and above all, to allow time to heal your wounds.
