Saturday Stories - Struggles

Following on from last week's story about accepting a compliment, here's another one that I think is important and that's acknowledging our struggles. 
 
I'm terrible at this. How often do you hear someone say "I can't feel sorry/sad etc, someone else has it worse than me."
 
So what? Just because it could be worse doesn't mean that you don't have a right to your feelings. Your struggles are your struggles and it's okay to voice those struggles. We all have different challenges.
 
Denying those challenges isn't being fair to ourselves. 
 
Yes, maybe it could be worse, but that doesn't make it any easier. We all have a right to our feelings, even if they are first world issues. Whatever the situation, we're living with our issues, not anyone elses. 
 
So if something is tough, say it's tough. You don't need to put on a brave front, you're allowed to be struggling with your situation. 
 
It's perfectly okay.
