If someone complains to you about something, then remember to sanity check the statement with some relativity.
The traffic in San Francisco is terrible! Relative to Sao Paulo, Brazil, where it takes 30minutes to go 2 miles, San Francisco traffic is a breeze!
The trains in London are unreliable! Relative to Los Angeles, where subways are virtually non-existent, London public transportation is incredibly accessible and quick!
The air quality Cape Town is low quality on a windless summer’s day! Relative to Sydney during the bush fire season, Cape Town’s air quality is liveable!
Everything is relative. Asking yourself, “compared to what?” is a great way to get some perspective on someone’s complaint.
