@ least is not enough.

20 Apr

Sometimes people don’t know what to say when they hear about your misfortune. They then try to point out the “positive” of the situation by saying: “@ least you/there/they . . . “. I catch myself doing this as well. I hate it.

We can’t have children. @ least you still have each other . . .

I have a stupid boss. @ least you still have a work . . .

My husband is an asshole. @ least you’re not alone . . .

My feet are sore. @ least you still have feet . . .

As if they want to tell you it could have been worse. Really? Like you don’t know!?!

When I choose to share my misfortune with you, it’s because I really want to share how I feel with someone who cares. Otherwise I would have kept it to myself.

I really know it could have been worse and that there’s lots that I need to be thankful for. That’s not why I’m sharing.

Give me a hug, tell me you know how it feels or just shut up. I’ve already run through all the “@ least”s by myself even before I told you ( and came up with a lot more that you could ever think of!). Repeating it does not make it any better or more real.

@ least is not helping . . .
