Why Me?

Why Me?

“When life puts you in tough situations, don’t say ‘Why me?’ Say ‘Try Me.'”

-Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

It’s human nature to think you’re the only one in the world to have problems when encountering turbulent moments in life.

During those given moments, it feels like the worst problem in the world.

It’s important to observe, however, that no matter how bad the situation seems, someone somewhere always has it worse.

It’s certainly not easy to remember or remind yourself that.

But should you remind yourself, it can play a very significant role in shaping your outlook.

If you have a car accident and survive, remember, it could have easily been fatal.

If you fail a class, remember that some people in the world cannot even afford to get an education.

Recently, I was forced to move into a smaller apartment due to a fire in the apartment complex.

At first, I hated it. But then I reminded myself that are so many people that don’t even have a roof over their head. In that thought process, I found myself grateful that A, there was no serious damage from the fire and B, I’m lucky to still have my stuff and a place to move that stuff.
