You won’t hear me complain about how cold it is outside(currently in Northampton it’s around -8 degrees). You won’t hear me whine or pout over the wind chill or how frigid the temps are when standing still(I drive to work, so I’m never standing, but you get my drift).
You won’t hear me complain.
Because I’m afforded the luxury to come to a warm office in the morning, to have a warmer apartment waiting for me after work, and a car to get me to these places. I’m fortunate to have a cozy bed to sleep upon, and not have to worry about where I(or in some cases my children) are going to sleep at night.
I’m afforded the luxury to walk around in my underwear at home, and not be concerned with my cardboard blanket being blown off me or whether or not that stray puppy or kitten I feed every morning will survive the night.
I’m fortunate enough to NOT have to complain, because I get it. I get that people impulsively complain about those things that, though trivial or temporary to them, are life and death to others.
So if you’re one of the millions of fortunate people out there, people like myself, shut the hell up.
There’s a high probability you’re reading this indoors, in a warm office or room, with a late breakfast steaming hot in front of you.
They’re are probably 1mil people outside right now who would trade their complaints for what you have.
