Once I quit thinking of it as “I have to get up and lose so much sleep”, things were much more bearable.
Are we really being grateful? I feel like that's a question many of us ask ourselves. “I should be grateful for what I have,” I tell myself. “My life is good. So what if I don’t have everything I want?” “Don’t some people have it worse?” Isn’t that the most common way we make ourselves feel bad for our desires? Of course some people have it worse, but that's not really the point.
