I just saw this post online, and it reminded me of a past experience that related.
Once i was having a really rough time in my life feeling quite depressed, I don't think i had accepted my AB/DL side yet, and my dad talked to me and basically told me that I should stop being so depressed because his sister had more problems than I do and she is a happy person. (Very paraphrased)
I kinda hated him telling me that, because even though it could have been a good example of how i could approach my problems, I felt like it was used as a way of saying that my problems don't matter.
What do you guys think about this statement?
