An Open Letter To A Friend

I know you know this and still I feel the need to remind you…

“It could be worse,” is not a useful perspective.

It implies that the pain or discomfort we are in is somehow insignificant, that it should be written off, and conversely, that the joys and gifts in our lives are somehow not enough.

Beyond how we see the glass, “half full” or “half empty,” the fact remains there is a container (real or imagined) holding half its capacity. That is it. Your perspective on the glass is only relative to how you think it should be in some ideal, imagined state.

Things are what they are. The glass is how it is. Whether it is drained or filled or left as is depends entirely on how you change the volume of the fluid or the size and shape of the container.

It is your glass, and your water, after all…
