“You can’t complain when other people have it worse” is a lie that people in power tell because it sets people in bad circumstances up in a competition. It means when we share our stories, we are always quietly fighting for the prize of being the worst off, and getting a tiny scrap of sympathy.
That keeps us from getting together and asking, why are our circumstances so bad and how can we make them better? It means only one person gets to complain and that person does it alone. As opposed to people working in concert to change their lives, to give each other strength and advice and encouragement.

“This is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams. So, please, just listen. I know you’re afraid…but being afraid is all right. Because didn’t anybody ever tell you? Fear is a superpower. Fear can make you faster and cleverer and stronger. And one day, you’re going to come back to this barn, and on that day you are going to be very afraid indeed. But that’s ok. Because if you’re very wise and very strong…fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly…
Fear can make you kind.”
