Your experience is yours

Pretending that you shouldn’t be upset, sad, frustrated, or temporarily despondent because “other people have it worse” is as foolish as saying that you shouldn’t feel joy, delight, or celebrate wins because “others have it better.”

Your experience need not be compared to anything to be valid.
