It could be worse, Lyra by teygrim It could be worse, Lyra by teygrim
This is the third and probably last part of my short little Lyra series of comics. So err They all lived happily ever after, =P.

Part 1: [link]

Part 2: [link]



QUESTION: Im actually pretty curious about this. Does what Twilight say in this comic actually help anyone? And I mean at the time; not in retrospect. Think back to how you felt and how you reacted when someone trivialised and dismissed your feelings in this way. Did the thought of other people suffering relieve you in any way and, if so, how? What did you think about the way your feelings were being dismissed because you werent suffering enough? Did it help to know that, in the grand scheme of things, your feelings dont matter? Did good intentions help? Was it enough to have someone who cared enough to tell you that your feelings dont matter? Im genuinely curious, because I hear this all the time and I cant imagine a situation in which it actually help, but Id like to hear what others think.

Personally, I thought I was helping when I said things like Twilight did, but I realized that really what I was saying was, "Shut up and get over it."
That's when I decided not to sugar-coat it.
Okay, I'm kidding, but I think as long as the friend means well, it doesn't matter what they actually say. I think it's the fact that they're trying to comfort you that counts.

Twilight's advice doesnt feel like it would help, everyone has problems, no matter big or small, they are worth your feelings.

That's true. Protip: never, ever say "it could be worse" to somebody. It comes across like you're dismissing their worries as petty and stupid. And according to Lesson Zero, that will lead to your friend going insane and starting a riot.

Nice punch line, though. Twilight's face as she watches things go from bad to worse was awesome!
