I have an advantage with most people like that. Due to previous experiences and/or general stupidity, I can usually top them. But that'* the past, right? What does not kill me, makes for dang good stories at the bar!!

Well, may I give my .02 here?

Great.

Okay, since our friend here is complaining that people say that they have it bad and say it on BC.com. Certainly, they could have told someone else but what if they had no one else willing to listen, or someone that will listen and give advice. Keep in mind some of us are in college on our own, some are living on their own and some just don't want to share their feelings with the family (could give them unnecessary stress) so they share it on BC.com where we are open-minded and willing to listen. Everybody has some kind of advice that they can give. BC.com IS a family even tho it'* a forum, it'* still a family where you can share your deepest feelings and not feel funny or betrayed. I've posted some problems and many many people gave wonderful advice, and to my surprise, they worked.

There. This is not meant to offend anyone but only gave my opinion.

I assumed that he was complaining about the rants from outside the club that other BC member posted about? Like you had a bad experience and you posted it on here. That'* what I assumed it meant?

Yeah, you have a point, but...

Everyone is living their life here. There is no way I know how bad someone elses life over mine, I just know how i feel when certain things happen to me.

Fuel, I appologize if you find this offensive, but you are the only example that I have right now that I know any details about.

Hypothetically, my hypothetic girlfriend of 3 years breaks up with me. I'm pretty down on myself and feel crummy. I feel bummed and I wanna talk to anyone I can about this because I feel so bad. But what you are asking me to do is think of other people. For example, I should hypothetically be thinking of...Fuel (I will edit upon request, but knowing you I don't think you will mind). He is deaf, he has to deal with difficulties every day of his life. Now I think about how difficult his life is every single day. Honestly I can't imagine what it would be like. So now my breaking up with my hypothetical girlfriend doesn't suck as bad because Fuel has to deal with stuff every day just because he is who he is.

The way I see it though is that people who have to deal with crap every day (that they shouldn't have to deal with, but it was the deck they were dealt) think of the crap they have to deal with as normal. Fuel is living his own normal life and I am living my own normal life. By most peoples' standards, my normal life is by far easier than Fuel'*. So why is it that when something bad happens to me, it doesn't matter. Other people are always going to have worse times in their lives than me...

Maybe I totally missed the point. Help me out here.

Logan, that doesn't even bother me. I mean, why would it bother me? But thank you for the comment. I think you got the point exactly IMO. There will alway be people suffering worse times than others. Sometimes, I think it helps to share what you're feeling and you will usually get advice back on how to deal with it. For example Morty had a outside experience and he shared his feelings on it and we're giving him advice on how to deal with it.
