Almost every day I complain about how my life sucks and how I have too much stress from exams and college. I say that it isn't fair that I have to learn and study all this stuff (which I have no interest in) faster than most people do. I think it's not fair that in certain ways, my options are so limited. It sucks that I might never get to do certain things that I really want to, or I might never get to visit and see certain places and people in my life.
But I realised that it doesn't matter. I'm already luckier than most of the people in this world. And I should never take that for granted.
We all think that our problems are the worst and that no one understands what we're going through and they don't know how hard it is. People get depressed over things like heartbreaks, family drama, mistakes they made in the past, self-esteem issues, education problems, and what-not. This happens because they spend so much time worrying about the little things, thinking and complaining about their life so much that they forget what their life is really worth. They don't realise that there are people in this world who would kill to be in their place.
I think we should all take a minute to think about how truly lucky we are and learn to appreciate our life, no matter how messed up it may be :)
