I don’t know who wrote this, it popped up on my dash earlier today.
I am fucking sick of this notion that if someone else has it worse than you, then you aren’t allowed to be upset. No, I’m not a starving child in Africa, but my life can still get pretty damn shitty sometimes, and I am allowed to be sad about it. Fuck you if you think otherwise. No one here can tell me that they’ve never been sad or upset over something that could be considered trivial.
This needs SHITTONS of notes.
I swear on my life I will clock someone as hard as I can in the face if they say I shouldn’t be upset just because I have a home and food. Anyone who says that is a close-minded, spoiled piece of shit.
THIS TIMES A MILLION
People really do need to stop this shit.
I’ve been told this so many times when I get upset and I just wanted to take every person that said this to me and throw them off a cliff.
I may live under a house and I may be given food, but that really does not mean my life is stress-free and happy.
This, I hate that stupid attempt at a guilt trip. =_= this one girl on my minecraft server tried to tell me about the poor kids in Africa and thats how I responded because I’m grateful I live in a home and have a bed and food, but that dosen’t mean I have no problems. v.v
It just made me feel worse because I feel like I’m a waste of human life because i’m taking resources from people who rely need it. VnV
I see that the person who sent the text message in this picture is in the other person’s contacts as “asshole”
And rightfully fucking so, if you ask me.
I’m aware of being lucky that I have a roof over my head, food and technology to help me counter my diabetes.
But do forgive me for being depressed and sad at having been laid off work again, at having my grandparents die within months of each other and things like this.
Everyone is hurt sometimes. There’s nothing wrong with seeking help and comfort. Just because someone has it worse doesn’t mean we have it good.
