Boy, do we have it bad here. So many problems, so many disappointments.
Or, do we, really?
Perhaps what we tend to see as problems aren’t that at all, but rather our psyches making them out to be problems, in the absence of any REAL problems. There’s no real threat to your life, but because you’re so used to a soft life of comfort and luxury, a broken nail can mean total ruination in your mind. The Ego loves being pampered.
There’s an old saying “Those without shoes should think about those without feet”. Don’t complain about your perceived or comparative lack of something, because there are always people in far, far worse situations than you.
We all like our creature comforts, that is true. And when we have them or can afford them, it’s happy smiles all round. Or is it? Maybe it’s more like smug mugs and a sense of entitlement. So, when those privileges are suddenly removed, we throw temper tantrums. Toys out of the cot.
Those who have never had these privileges or luxuries can only look on and wonder what all the fuss is about. They don’t suffer from “First World Problems” like some people do.
We’ve been spoilt for far too long. Time to disconnect from our technology and reconnect with our fellow human beings. Learn to appreciate what you already have, instead of always wanting what you don’t have. That’s true Happiness.
And here are some First World Problems I found on Google Images. You’ll see just how ridiculous they are, really, in the grand scheme of things.
