Yes and no and yes
A lot easier than most, yep.
Yes and no. At age eight I got a painful auto immune disease that crippled me for around twelve years. When you look at that aspect of my life, it is not easier. When it comes to friends, family, and many other things I do have a better life than many people. Either way I think I have a happier life than. Many people because choose to be happy regardless of life's hardships.
Yes in some respects and no in others.
Everybody in your country and mine is in the global 1%. No matter how bad it gets, I'm better off than the real 99%. Doesn't mean it's been easy.
No, but it has helped me become a stronger person in many ways.
By Western standards, no. But then again I've never had to worry about lynch mobs or my government cutting my head off.
I have had it rougher than roughly about 75% of the people in any given first-world country.<br />
...However, I am friends with people who were tortured sexually as children by multiple perpetrators.<br />
So I have a hard time feeling sorry for myself.
There are approximately 7.06 billion people on the planet earth. If you think I've had it easier or harder than all 7 billion of those people, you're either crazy or stupid. That's why everyone's answering the same way: Harder than some, easier than others.
Just given more tools to utilize
In a lot of ways, yes. I'm grateful for that.
Some yes.. more no... was a better time when...but these days
Yes, I was born smart.
That likely wouldn't have helped you a whole lot had you been born in sub Saharan Africa.
I would think that would help learn, discover and invent new or better ways of living no matter where.
Yes, until I hit 30...
No.... so much happened i would think all... if not most... would of had a better life me.
Well I have had it easier than Jobe, but that's about it. :)
