Just because someone could ‘have it worse’ doesn’t mean you aren’t struggling.
And just because someone might ‘have it better’ doesn’t mean that what you have isn’t amazing.
I often hear people’s trials and adversities being compared to others.
Things like, “well at least you’re not starving.” Or “well you actually have a family” or “you shouldn’t complain you are so___”.
The opposite is also true, “oh my gosh they have all this money they are so lucky” or “wow their relationship looks so fun” or “I bet they are doing such cool stuff right now with all their free time”.
I am taking a stand.
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO FEEL EMOTIONS REGARDLESS OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCE.
Comparing your success or your struggles to others is like spitting in your own Face.
You deserve more recognition than that.
If you’re sad, but you have lots of money, that doesn’t mean you can’t be sad.
If you’re happy, but you live out of a box, that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy.
If you’re feeling an emotion it’s a response and you’re allowed to feel that way.
Being depressed but having a lot of amazing things doesn’t limit depression.
Same with being happy but having things others may never want to even have or wish on their worst enemy.
Your story and your life is YOURS.
We all need to be more understanding and open to the emotions of the fellow souls we share this planet with.
Honor everyone’s pains, even if they are different than yours or the next guy’s.
Just acknowledge people for being raw enough to share the human experience they are having. Embrace emotions lovingly.
ONE MORE TIME; IT IS OKAY TO FEEL, FEELING IS HEALING.
Let those emotions flow through you so they don’t become dormant and stuck and manifest physically in your body or your reality.
And no matter how good or how bad you feel, embody gratitude and love, each of these emotions can and do pull us through the hardest and best of times.
You are worthy of being fully yourself, fully human.
Don’t limit yourself based on the opinions of how others think you should or shouldn’t feel, that’s their problem to work through, not yours ❤️💗
