@impy: often when putting ones problems in perspective, one begins to realize it's not that bad. At least, I manage to do that.
I mean, sure, life is a whore sometimes, but when I sit down and think about things I realize I dont have cancer, missing limbs, or a government controlled by extremist Jihadists, so in reality my life is, on the whole, pretty decent and certainly worth living.
Hence, my original comment. Perhaps I should have elaborated in the first place.
What you say is true. I see now that you were trying to help. I'm sorry for misjudging your comment. But based on my own personal experience, it really does not help someone to tell them that their problems are insignificant, no matter how good your intentions are. That's why I called you out like that.
