A snippet of consciousness.

If there's one phrase that I simply can't stand, it's that we should consider ourselves lucky because we're not starving in Africa, or living on the streets, or dying of cancer. I don't think there's a slight that could discount someone's problems more. By all means, be grateful for what you have, and recognise the positives in your life, but don't ever, ever be afraid to grieve for something you lost, or never had, or deperately desire. Don't be afraid to turn to someone else and tell them that you are not okay. Don't be afraid to be happy and to be fine, because that shouldn't be a guilt-trip.
