DISCLAIMER: this blog shouldn't offend anyone, just make them more aware of their spoken words.
In a little over 3 months I have known 3 people diagnosed with cancer. In three months every single problem I thought I had, no longer really mattered. Because someone is actually having a really bad day. One of my biggest pet peeves lately has definitely become seeing all of the negative comments on facebook & twitter. Comments like "ugh, I have the worse luck, they didn't have the shoes I wanted", or a "My messy house needs to be cleaned, agh my life sucks." Really? I am sure it sucks having to clean your house, but your life sucks because of that? No, seriously? Atleast you have a house, atleast you have the ability to get what you want when you want it. (And it isn't these comments, per say, just the negative comments in general.) So the complaining should probably stop. ***I know I have more than likely been guilty of such a crime, but I really have tried a lot lately to just be thankful. If people only knew what was really going on with that person sitting next to them with a blank look in their eyes. Do you know their story, or are you too busy complaining about all the things you don't need? I don't mean to rant but RATHER make people more aware of the people around them. Not everyone is as fortunate as you might be, and if they have the means, you still don't know their story. Take a closer look.
It might surprise you.
