I have a cousin who was telling me the other day about how unhappy she is at her job. The company watches everyone closely and is stingy with sick and vacation time. I guess she thinks her boss is a tool, too.
So she hates her job, she’s not happy with her boyfriend, and I know that she hates where she lives. I told her to find a new job, dump the dude, and move.
But the point I wanted to make for you dudes is this. When I was talking on the phone with her, I was taking a break on a job site and looked out the window. Here’s what I saw:
Things don’t seem so bad when you think about someone who is homeless and cold on the street. Begging for a buck to get a sandwich. People ignoring him.
The next time you think you’re doing pretty bad, ask yourself how you’re really doing.
Not homeless? Then you’re okay.
Have someone who cares about you? Then you’re okay.
Have a job? Then you’re okay.
Have a roof over your head? Then you’re okay.
Point is, dudes, there’s always things that suck, but you’re probably more okay than you think.
