Graphic-Studio just showed you an awesome image, which hopefully reminds you that how lucky you are to be alive.

That image is good but it’s the wrong way to approach the problem.

You cannot feel better by thinking about other people’s suffering, it’s stupid .. you can only be more depressed.

Hapinness come from within, not from comparing yourself with anyone.

Right, but you have to put some perspective here.

That image can make you feel bad because people are suffering .etc, or can make you feel grateful for what you have and realize that you are luckier than you might think.

I disagree, using your logic .. then people who feel good are impervious and de-sensitised to those with little, and whom are suffering.

I think that graphic, is powerful and represents a perspective that at times we should all subscribe to, humility

You can be aware of this problem (and even deeply touched) and not use it to make you feel better, there’s a huge difference.

The only way that image can make you feel better for real is if you decide to take tangible action to change something about it.

Why be humble “At times” ? You can be humble all of the time and you certainly do not need this image to do it.

I agree, with “tangibile action”

We have to be introspective, but also proactive and remain positive. I don’t subscribe to the 24/7 humble attitude, but that is just my persona…

I actually am in the majority i think, who at times need a wake up call from self imposed ignorance

Depression and similar st won’t get you out of the problem. You need to aim for a clear goal and work your a for it.
My family has been trough so much s**t within last 20 years, after we lost almost everything(and we were really really rich), but we kept our heads up and got through it..

Hmmm .. Not sure I follow you, oh well.

A huge minority is still a minority… So i disagree, but thats me spent :)

You say you are in the “majority” of people who need a wake up call ..

But just by acknowledging that fact prove that you are in the huge “minority” of people with enough awareness to know it :)

I agree with Dany (the first thing he said). I am sorry for you, but you need to do something about it, don’t expect things to get solved by themselves. Think about what is it that got you into this situation and how you can solve it.
