Whenever we hear this turn of phrase, it tends to be regarding a negative situation or outcome of the proclaimer.

Why was I born into a poor family?

Why did I get the cranky boss?

Why aren’t I good at mathematics?

Why am I so short?

Why don’t I have clear skin?

Why me…?

The interesting thing is that we never hear these people asking why they were born healthy, with working limbs, in a country without war or famine, and with a family that loves them.

No, they’d rather point out the ‘margnial’ negative facets in their life and only ever look up the ladder to people who are better off in one particular area. They forget to look down. We all have elements in our lives in which others are better off, and we all have elements in which we are better off than others. So it’s vital we look both ways, up and down,  and keep a balanced perspective on life.

In fact the real why me question they might ask is why don’t I have a better attitude? And the reason they don’t ask this question is that it is something they have total control over.
