There’s always someone worse off than you!

When people use that phrase, they are really saying ‘Only the person who is currently the worst off in the world is allowed to be upset’.

This would mean out of the billions on Earth, only one person at any one time is allowed to be upset.

So if you had lost your entire family in an accident, but someone else had had that happen but had also lost their job, then you wouldn’t be allowed to be upset!

That’s how ridiculous that phrase is. It also creates great suffering.

    The person who came up with that quote obviously had nothing else to do but criticise. I bet someone later on in their life said it to them and they wish they had not invented it!
