Why Should It?

Why should my pain or hurt matter? It's just trivial. It's not something to give a huge attention to. I'm just an average teenager with the usual, normal problems - low self-esteem/confidence, emotionally abusive parents, occasional depression - just small stuff you gotta deal with everyday. It's nothing compared to people with real problems, real hurt and pain - the pain of losing someone they love, the pain of having their hopes and dreams crushed and knowing that they'll never fulfill them...those are the stuff that matter. Why should mine matter?

When you're living in a world of rapists, murderers, sociopaths and god knows what else, trivial teenage problems seem...well...trivial. Instead of whining and complaining about it, move on. My pain isn't worth fussing over.

I don't think it's no pain. I'm the same. =/

Hey, hey... no pain is trivial and one should not compare pains. Everyone's pain is his own version of hell, a lady in my circle says this. I know, people don't care and people do play my-pain-is-huge-so-I-win-the-game. Emotionally abused or neglected children can grow into a number of issues, so this is not a trivial matter. I hope, you will find people here, who will listen to you, understand you and if you seek help, they offer you.<br />
As you say, trivial pains, I too have some trivial pains. I'm an introvert, I'm a quiet person, I keep things with me, I don't socialize and I've real hard time getting emotionally close to someone and recently I'm experiencing frequent mood swings. I struggle and try to live like normal people, who does not want a normal life? Everyone around me also thinks this is no pain.
