It's tough when we aren't doing well, and someone else is doing good, but nice if we can be happy for them instead.

Whome, Glad you've had the opportunities. We all fight these things, and, honestly, some of us get sick of hearing "be positive and it'll all work out" routine that marginalizes our suffering saying, "hey, if only you were more positive..." In fact, I found it downright offensive. Have you walked in my shoes? Nope. I'm sick of the war and banging my head up against the wall because I don't know what the fuck to do to make it better. Could I be worse? Yeah, could be. I really don't care because I'd trade the last 40 years for all I got screwed out of and I'll give up an arm for it. Could it be worse? Yeah, but it isn't. Would I trade my lonely, hellish 40 years for something different? Yeah, 99% sure. Perhaps ask one of us obviously having a bad time what the fuck is wrong instead of saying "if you were only more fucking positive!"
