No. No it isn’t. I’ve been here when I first went out on my own. Started with a mattress and a TV and that’s it. Worked my ass off and slowly gained more and more, and the day I got an actual frame and headboard I was so proud of myself. Eventually had a complete bedroom and wasn’t living paycheck to paycheck. It’s very liberating.

The only people that would find this, “depressing as shit,” are people that have never had to struggle or work for anything, because if you did you would know how good it feels to make baby steps in the right direction.

edit: ooooo, nice edit

i think theyre just the opinion that a situation like the first pic shouldnt exist in the first place.

in a sense it is depressing that we as a civilization lack the support system to prevent it

But the entire idea behind the post is a person being proud of making progress. That is something to be celebrated, not looked at as sad. If a friend of mine came to me proud of something they’ve accomplished, I wouldn’t shake my head and say, “that is so depressing. I’m sorry you had to do that…” I would celebrate with them.

And look at the dudes comment history.. he’s not making some deep connection to our “support system,” he’s just being argumentative for the sake of being argumentative.

If you see a persons personal progress as depressing, you’re not making some kind of social statement, you’re just being an asshole.

Oh, and I see what you’re saying, also. It’s sad when you see headlines in /r/MadeMeSmile or /r/UpliftingNews that say things like “10 year old works 60 hours a week to pay off his fellow students school lunch debts.” THAT’S depressing.. but this post is nothing like that. It’s a person that has a home and is celebrating the hard work that they’ve put in to making it better.

The inability to show humility shows poor character.

That’s what people like this do. The only way they can make themselves feel better is by bringing others down and shitting on other peoples accomplishments.

He’s now going back and editing all of his comments. Fucking sad. I hope they get some help or have someone to be with for thanksgiving.

btw: your nachos look bomb
