If you have never starved in your life, that is, if you have eaten every day of your life,
If you were able to get an education,
If you have never been abused physically or sexually,
If you have always had a roof over your head,
If your parents were kind, loving and respectful to you, whether they were together or not,
If you have never been hospitalized because of a grave illness, If you have never had any mental issues,
If you have never been arrested, not because you run away from the authorities, but because you have never committed a crime,
If you were always surrounded by friends and family that cared for you and loved you,
If you have never known, seen or lived through war or famine,
If you have lived in a country, where your mere existence has been protected and respected,
Then you are one of the luckiest people in the whole world. Perspective is always necessary.
Just be thankful and grateful for having a life millions, if not billions of people would envy. By the way, you are not special. You are just lucky. Most of these things you are not responsible for, they just happen or didn’t happen to you.
Just one man’s opinion…
Now, smile and go on with your day.
