Do you have those days when you feel like other people got it better than you?

That your life isn't what you had envisioned it to be? Days when other peoples lives seem so much better than you? Today, that's how I feel. It sucks.

  • My life isn't what I'd hoped it to be and of course there are people who have it better than I do. I never imagined I'd be a young widow struggling just to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. But life has a way of twisting and turning in directions we don't expect, that's just how it is. And there are many people who have it much worse than I do. Compared to many? I have it pretty good.

  • Yes, I do sometimes and then I remember that some dear friends and relatives have it worse than me and I need to take a deep breath and be thankful for what I do have. I hope you have more good days than those that put you down in the dumps. HUG

  • I feel that way sometimes. But I know there are people who prob feel that way about me, and someone feels that way about them. We never really know what goes on in someone's personal life so it may look like they have it better and they really don't. That's why we shouldn't let us feeling this way keep us down for too long.

  • Have to remember there is always someone that has it worse than you...and even the people that seem to have it all together have problems, too. Just got to think of what you DO have instead of dwelling on what you DON'T have. Hang in there...

  • I think it's normal to feel that way, it happens to all of us. Like some others have said, there are many many people who have it worse than you. I hope you feel better soon.
