The next time you get down on yourself, think of all the people that would envy your life.
Among them, people feeling alone in the world, unloved and unwanted. Add to them people who are battling life-threatening illnesses who wish if even for an hour, they could be pain free.
Do you have a job, a home, food in the refrigerator and electricity and clean tap water? If so you my friend are the envy of billions of people.
So take a moment to appreciate what you have and let gratitude, not self-pity, be your guide.
