>Sometimes, I just need to get a little perspective. Sadly, it usually comes when I realize that my life isn’t as shitty as someone else’s. I don’t wish anyone ill will, but it’s nice that their misery helped me feel better. Yes, that’s terrible, but you all know you’ve done it.

Point: I’m not trapped in a loveless marriage or relationship. I’m free. It’s better to be on my own than with someone who doesn’t love me.

Point: I’m not in jail. Being a Pollyanna when it comes to the law usually pays off. I get to sleep in my own bed and not have to urinate in front of anyone.

Point: I’m employed. For many people, through no fault of their own, they don’t get the joy of hearing their boss compliment their work. Honestly, I need to remember that feeling of accomplishment next time I’ve berating myself for another failed relationship attempt.

Of course, there is probably someone out there who looks at my life and goes, “Thank God I’m not her. Sleeping alone every night. No one to come home to after work.”

It’s funny, but I can’t really think of any other parts of my life that I want to change…well, living with my parents is on the top of the list. I need to buy a place of my own and quick. But other than that factor which is easily changed, my life is kind of great.
