Big deal, youâ€™re pregnant! You canâ€™t work? Youâ€™re tired?
I worked until I was 8 months into it!
Youâ€™ve got it hard stepping into someone elseâ€™s role?
At least you shadowed them for three months!
You had a miscarriage? You canâ€™t cope? You need help?
I had one and had to carry on as normal!
You canâ€™t manage the stress that your in laws cause?
I live with mine!
You havenâ€™t got money to buy furniture straight away?
We never had the possibility of having that so we got second hand goods!
You have a problem with speaking clearly?
At least you can speak.
You havenâ€™t got a car of your own?
You have a job and the money to travel by other means.
You donâ€™t have a freezer?
You have a fridge and cooker so you have options. Make less, rather than extra eat. Eat it all so you don’t need to freeze leftovers. Eat fresh food instead of frozen.
You canâ€™t have kids?
You can adopt a child who is here already and NEEDS love.
Have you ever been in this state of mind before? When youâ€™ve had an answer for everything that shows the other person they are not that badly off? What does that do? If they need a kick up theâ€¦and theyâ€™re always whinging, it might help them focus on what theyâ€™ve got.
If this is not the case; it tells them they are making themselves out to be a victim unnecessarily and that theyâ€™ve got it made because YOU had it so bad! Even if you are right; does it take their suffering away? Does it mean their pain isnâ€™t important?
Can you put a value on pain, suffering, feeling or hurt? Is compassion is what we all need more of?
