When you are venting about a bad day or a bad situation, and someone says "At least(fill in the blank), you don't have cancer, your kids aren't sick, you can still walk, etc."
After breakfast this morning, I slipped on my stairs going into the basement, and fell and hit my back on the edge of the top step. It hurts REALLY bad and in fact it was hurting so bad this afternoon, I got ANOTHER migraine. ( I had one last night and I get migraines about 3-4 times a week. I posted on FB a little while ago that my back was killing me and I got another migraine and we're expecting an ice storm tonight. I said, in a tongue in cheek manner, "Can someone just shoot me already?" My husband's brother's wife, who is also known as the Wicked Witch of the West, said "At least you woke up this morning." Gee thanks for those words of wisdom and encouragement!! It's not like I complain all the time and for someone who gets almost daily migraines, I think I stay pretty positive.
Why do people think that reminded you that things could always be worse, makes your current problems better?
