I hate it when people say you’ve got it better than other people in poor countries, does that change the thoughts I have EVERY DAY of hurting myself? Yes, I understand people are living in worse conditions than I am around the world, but my problems aren’t about living conditions. It’s like whenever people hear me complain about my life (which I HARDLY even do!) they tell me I shouldn’t complain and am lucky to be where I am! Saying this doesn’t stop the feelings and thoughts and depression and low self-esteem and high anxiety, it’s not the cure to my problems! Don’t make me feel even worse by making me think that my problems are inconsequential and should be overlooked.
