In this article I will explain why you should be grateful everyday.
A lot of people are always comparing themselves to someone better than them and not being happy with what they have now. They see that someone else is happier, richer, taller, better looking, gets more girls, gets hotter girls, has an easier life, is more popular, is luckier or whatever else.
You will never be happy when you compare yourself to others because the truth is there is always going to be someone better than you. You should compete with no one but yourself and celebrate your successes while moving forward.
I wish people who want to kill themselves read my article and realise that there is so much to live for and that life is precious so why cut it short?
You will die someday, I will, everyone will, but why kill yourself? Is it that bad?
There are people with fucked up illnesses spending their days in hospital beds wishing they could be healthy just to go for a walk outside. Wishing they could be at least someone healthy just to live a NORMAL AVERAGE LIFE.
Think about that. There are people in the world who wish they could live just a normal life! If only they could trade life and health with people who want to kill themselves.
There is a scene in the movie fight club where Edward Norton is depressed telling Tyler Durden about how his apartment blew up and how he had everything in that apartment and it was close to being perfect and Tyler said “it could be worst, a woman could cut off your penis while you are sleeping and toss it out of the window of a moving car” and Edward goes “there’s always that”
Edward Norton was acting like it was the end of the world but Tyler had the more positive care free attitude which is better.
