Hey Andy. I really liked this. A lot of what you talk about isn’t just young people, it’s people of all ages.

Anyone reading this most likely has a roof over their head, an internet connection, and we ate today. In the 3 minutes it took to read this, 45 people died of hunger. We are among the luckiest people in the world for no reason except that we won the birth lottery.

But with the dominance of sites like FB, it’s all too easy to compare our insides to other people’s carefully curated outsides. I really enjoy when people notice that and recognize first.world.problems instead of perpetuating the nonsense.

Thanks for sharing this. :)
