It comes in different shapes, forms, and sizes. It comes in different seasons and different temperatures. So many different variations of pain.
Yet, we compare. Why?
Is it fair to say I am hurting and you are hurting too?
Do I have to win the tug-of-war of who is hurting more?
We cause each other more agony by comparing our lives.
What can we do to change this?
We could improve our dialogue. Instead of forming a sentence of comparison, let’s try to speak in unity: “Wow, we both are enduring hard times. What can we do to support each other?”
We can also choose to focus on one person at a time, allowing space to speak freely.
Pain hurts, let’s not add to our hurt by not being heard, respected, or considered.
