  • Absolutely. I just recently got crashed into at a stop light by a woman who ran the light, hit another car almost head on, and bounced off his car and totalled mine, all while I was sitting still. I was feeling really sorry for myself until I learned of an acquaintance who buried her husband at 2 in the afternoon, and her son died at 5 on the same day. It made me really ashamed of my attitude about a car!!

  • Problems all have some sort of significants..they are important to the person going through the issue...Death & Dying are just acceptances of life...Not to sound so insensitive...But, I believe everything or anything someone is encountering has importance.

  • Defiantly no matter what someone is going through worse. Not that it makes me feel any better.

  • I understand what you are saying. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our own problems that we tend to make them bigger issues than what they really are...and then we see/read about a person going through something REALLY tough we realize that our problems aren't so big after all. That happened recently when I was worried about a petty argument that I had with my husband and found out that a person I know (online) just lost their child due to a tragic accident ~ it totally changed my perspective.

  • Yes all the time, it's very humbling to see the struggles others have been dealt.

  • I try not to. I try to realize that we all go through the experiences we need to go through. Thing is, when you start feeling better about your life when someone else goes through trouble or tragedy, then it's easy to fall in the trap of "the other way around"- you feel miserable when you see someone succeed when bad things to be happening to you.
    So I think we should just accept our blessings and our challenges equally, after all, they both come from the same place- G-d.

  • Yes, our neighbor's son passed away at age 23. It's a very sad story.

  • oh yeah...whenever i start complaining about my life and thinking im stressed out i remind myself of the ppl i know who have it far worse. and then i feel bad that my friends are having things so bad, cause if im stressed over little things i can only imagine how hard their lives are stressing over big things.
