You know what irks me the most? It's when you are feeling low and people tell you that you have no right to feel down because you have it going easy compared to other "less fortunate" beings. They're right, of course. I, too, despise people who complain like there's no tomorrow over the most trifling things when in fact, they have so much to be thankful for.
However, there's no telling how strong or weak a person is. Just because you are living a privileged or a relatively comfortable life doesn't mean your pain isn't real. So I say this to people who are sad but feel guilty about it: don't. Just don't. Feel sad, by all means. Cry if it makes you feel better. Let yourself run through the course and take your time bouncing back. You are, after all, human. You are entitled to your occasional human lapses.
