3 Words You’ll Never Hear Me Say

12 Jul

I can’t count the number of times I’ve noticed these 3 words on someones Facebook status or have heard them mentioned in a conversation. I can however tell you that it drives me absolutely, positively bonkers when I hear or read them.

What three words in our English language could possibly irk me enough to write about?

“My Life Sucks!”

I’ll admit I’ve had my low times. You know the ones I’m talking about – where you feel like you just can’t catch a break, it’s one thing after another, and nothing ever seems to go your way.

I don’t think there is a single person out there who hasn’t experienced one if not all of these feelings. It’s how you cope and handle these situations that will determine if you get through them.

A long time ago I discovered that it is all about perspective. No matter how bad I think I have it, there is always another person out there who has it a million times worse – and you can bet your ass they aren’t going around saying “my life sucks!”

Household appliances can be replaced, cars can be fixed, relationships can be mended & broken hearts do heal with time.

Next time you feel like saying “my life sucks” volunteer at the local children’s hospital or just turn on the news. Imagine for one second that your child was diagnosed with a fatal/incurable disease, your home had just been washed away by flood waters or your entire life was being ripped to shreds by war. That broken dishwasher, flat tire, family feud and break-up will all of a sudden pale in comparison.

    Absolutely agree with u Melissa. Has always been my motive that there is always someone out there that has life alot worse than me. Then it does put things in perspective. After experiencing 2 wonderful years working in a hospital setting it has just put that perspective into check even more for me. I love my job and wouldn’t change it for the world. I only wish i did it 20 years ago.
