Remember this, before you compare yourself to others.
Remember this, before you minimise your experience, just because someone else ‘has it harder’.
Remember this, before you criticise yourself for struggling, when others seem to be coping fine.
Remember this, before you wonder why someone else can’t just ‘get on with things’ like you do.
Remember this, before you tell someone ‘it’s not that bad’ or ‘there’s people worse off’.
Remember this, and choose always to respond with kindness – to yourself, and to others.
And always remember – just as the sun sets on the horizon every day, so too will it set on hard times.
Wait for the sunrise.
