Well, if it makes you feel any better...

Have you ever told someone about something bad or difficult that you are going through and without skipping a beat, they say, "Well, if it makes you feel any better..." and then tell you something really awful that their neighbor or cousin or someone else is going through?

The short answer is, "No!" it doesn't make you feel better at all.

They're trying to make you appreciate what you have by telling you about someone else who has worse things going on but their method is flawed.

You get through your pain with help and encouragement, not by having it dismissed as not being so bad compared to someone else.
