Stop comparing suffering

“But my problems are nothing compared to yours.” Is my least favorite thing people say to me.

The truth is, even the littlest struggle is valid because it’s your struggle. My struggle doesn’t invalidate yours.

I want to be able to be there for those who struggle. I want other’s to be able to see me as a woman who overcomes obstacles, not a woman who has it worse than everyone.

It’s time to stop comparing our struggles. Chances are, someone will always have it worse than you. That fact doesn’t invalidate what’s hard for you.
