but after seeing some of the rants I feel like my problems are nothing. Maybe it's because I'm older physically and mentally. Not more mature, just older. It seems like I don't assign enough weight to my problems compared to a lot of people on here. I have "normal" problems. Mortgage, bills, love issues, but, to me, they're not end of the world issues like on here. Maybe it's because I have an ex that acted like every issue was a world ender She was just as upset at her mom's passing as she would get at eggs being too runny (minus the crying). I'm probably an asshole which is why I feel this way or it's because I'm old and dead inside, I don't know. But I read some of these issues which are page long diatribes about how someone looked at you sideways and now society is so unjust. I'm not trying to downplay any one's issues or anything. It's probably because as you get older your optimism for life slowly deteriorates. I know it's probably a bit hypocritical, getting so worked up about people complaining about non issues online, which is, in and of itself, a non issue. What can you do though?
