Oh my goodness, so sorry to hear you update. My condolences. But you are right, we fuss and give weight to things that really don’t matter in the end. Thank you for the reminder.

My dad is dying, so I understand. However just because I am going through something serious doesn’t mean that others’ problems are any less legitimate. Small, everyday stressors really suck too and my feelings don’t invalidate theirs. Yes, don’t sweat the small stuff is a good message but if something bothers you, that isn’t going to vanish just because strangers had a relative pass away.

@MrsPanda99:  I don’t think she meant “Don’t worry about the things you’re worried about because my dad just died”. I think she means “I wish I hadn’t spent so much time and energy being mad about my dad’s gf because now that he’s gone I see how silly it was”. More don’t worry about YOUR little things and focus on YOUR big things.

@MrsJ2Bee: I’m so sorry about your loss but glad you were able to have a special, beautiful moment with your dad before he passed. Take lots of time to take care of yourself!

@MexiPino:  That makes more sense. I suppose I read it wrong. A lot of people seem to think their big issues mean others’ smaller issues are trivial. I don’t think that’s the case. I can still be annoyed that flowers are expensive and care about my dad. I suppose I’m just sensitive about the whole thing.

@MrsPanda99:  You’re going through it right now, so yeah…. I would have totally read that wrong or just put more into it than was there right after mom’s death. For me, I was totally aware that other people still had problems…. I just didn’t want to hear about them. Made life as a Complaint Department Rep at a travel agency SUUUUPER fun. “Oh, you don’t like the design on the chair in your 5 star hotel room? MY MOM JUST DIED SO STFU!” siiiigh
