All that glitters is not gold, live and be happy with what you have, everyone goes through one thing or the other. Be thankful and content.

1. A guy met one of his classmates several years after school and he could not believe his eyes; his friend was driving one of the latest stylish Mercedes-Benz cars. He returned home feeling awful and very disappointed with himself. He thought he was a failure. What he did not know was that his friend was a driver and was sent on a mission with his boss’s car.

2. Rosemary always harassed her husband for not being romantic. She accused him of not coming down to open the car door for her as her friend Jane’s husband did when he dropped her off at work. What Rosemary did not know was that Jane’s husband’s car had a broken door that could only be opened from the outside!

3. Sampson’s wife went to visit one of her long-time friends and was very disturbed to see her friend’s three adorable children having fun. Her problem was that she had only one child and had struggled to conceive for the last five years. What she did not know was that one of those children who was her friend’s biological child had sickle-cell disease and had only one year to live; the other two were adopted.

4. Life does not have a universal measuring tool; so create your own and use it. Watching people and comparing yourself to them will not make you better but bitter. If you know the kind of load that the chameleon carries, you would not ask why he takes those careful strides. So, enjoy what you have and be grateful to God for that.

Still asking why me? Please stop and start appreciating what you have in front of you.

My equals are getting married

My equals have children

My equals have a good job

My equals succeed

My equals live by the sea-side

My equals are buying luxury cars

My equals are high dignitaries in society

My equals build their homes

My equals are this

My equals are that

Yes, it’s true ! But it’s a shame that you literally forget:

Your equals who are already buried

Your equals who are in a coma

Your equals who are HIV-positive

Your equals who are dialysis

Your equals who are in a psychiatric center

Your equals who sleep in the street

Your equals who are orphans

Your equals who are not employed

Your equals who are hungry

Your equals who are blind, deaf, dumb

Your equals with disabilities

Your equals who envy you and who are ready to make all kinds of prayers to have a life like yours.

You aren’t where you ought to be, but you are obviously happier than many others. Complain less and thank God for the much you have now. It isn’t everything you ever dreamed of, but it’s yours.

Be yourself . Never forget that when you look for sandals, there are those who do not even have feet.

Blessings and Love ❤️
