"Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child's loss of a doll and a king's loss of a crown are events of the same size."
- Mark Twain
When you turn on the news or read a magazine article that focuses on someone else's tragedy, you may feel guilty because their losses may seem more "important" than yours. How can I be so upset about my situation when others have much more serious ones? You never need to feel that way. You are as justified as anyone else to have the feelings that you do about your loss. It is as personal as a fingerprint, and another person's situation cannot diminish yours.
