I want to share some thoughts with you people.
I will always defend the necessity of being critical and not allowing injustice in our or other people's lives with the excuse that "it could be worse". So nothing of what I'm going to write applies in cases of mistreatment, labour exploitation, abuse or any other kind of social injustice or illness. This is one thing. But I believe it's good and important to be grateful and to relativise our "problems" which, many times, they are not problems at all but just tiny little stones on our way which just make our lives a bit less comfortable. Let's get over it.
I'm grateful to every person who ever reminded to me, whenever I was complaining about something stupid, that there are far more important things to worry about and many people with really bad things happening to them. I like this site and I like the support that people give to each other, but sometimes I can't help but feeling a bit of a shiver whenever somebody, often a teenager or a very young person, with a childish complaint (there's every now and then people posting really childish complaints here...) gets many "Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that you are going through this" kind of answers. It's dangerous that this site turns into a place where children or teenagers can come with any kind of complaints and they will all, no matter what, be admitted as valid complaints, when they should be helped to take responsibility and grow up. And not only children or teenagers, everybody for that matter.
Because we have to learn to distinguish what is important from what it's not, otherwise we all end up totally nuts.
Because it is just not true that all problems are equally grave or important.
I will be happy to read your thoughts on this. Thanks for reading this post.
