This is something that I struggle with a lot. It can seem like everywhere I look -- my friends, Facebook, Instagram, church -- people are getting what they want, and generally leading happy, perfect lives. I know it's not true. Lots of people skim over the hard things, and so something that seems like it just happened to them, with no effort on their part, could have taken years of hard work you know nothing about. Or maybe it didn't, and that's OK, too.
Sam's course is coming to a close and we need to worry now about finding jobs and where we'll live and when to move with a newborn. Things like that are stressful enough already, without adding in extra comparison of friends and acquaintances. So this is on my mind a lot, the realization that everyone struggles and nothing is perfect. Somehow things will work out for us, and hard work mostly does go rewarded.
