I am currently in a summer drama program. (It's Anything Goes) I was really close to getting Hope (a lead part), and even the director told me, but the girl who got it was just a little bit better at acting. So now, I'm an Angel. (In case you've never seen the show, basically, I'm a sluttly background singer) At first I was bummed that I didn't get Hope, but then I found out that my friend's dad died. Now I feel like crap for complaining about my part. At least I got one. I feel so ungrateful.

Wow Shimmery, you sound just like me when I feel bad about something that I feel is insignificant. I don't know, sometimes I feel like a spoiled brat when I complain about my face all the time, but then I see talk show hosts talking to people who have lost a arm or a foot, then I feel depressed again! I'm my own worst enemy :doh: I'm like, "see? they can cope with their disabilites, why can't you?"

My mom used to say, "I don't do comparative misery. I'll do you the courtesy of assuming your misery is as bad as you can tolerate if you'll do the same for me."

It's good to maintain a sense of perspective, but it's counterproductive, I think, to tell yourself that you shouldn't be feeling certain feelings because someone else's problems seem more "legitimate" or "real".
