  3. Wow! Well said Janeane. You don’t know the situation of someone unless they tell you. Relationships are hard work indeed and if we put in the work we’ll get there, the grass will be green!

  4. It’s like “mind your own business?” hehehehe. Each families are different and we all have problems in life it may be different but we all go through emotional, mental and physical distress.

  6. I totally agree. We can never tell somebody how to live their lives, because we never known what’s happening behind that door.

  7. I sure do agree. We don’t know what lies behind those smiles and laughs of other people. They may look happy, but we don’t know deep within their real situation. I do agree with focusing in on our own lives and how to better improve it instead of being jealous and comparing it to others. If we want to be successful, we must work hard for it. That’s so true. Thanks for sharing.

  8. It’s always a great feeling when people admire and sees what’ you’ve been working hard for. You are right, it’s not always greener on the other side of the fence.

  9. You always have very beautiful outlook and perspective, so inspiring to read. I agree, we should focus on how to improve our situation instead of being envy to the success of others.

  10. Trials are always part of lives. They made us stronger. The important thing in life is that we know how to handle those trials the best way possible. It’s not advisable to compare our lives with other people.

  11. Janeane, this is a beautiful and wonderfully written post. It is a fantastic reminder that we all need to spend the time on our grass instead of worrying about other peoples. Amazing words you have written here. Thank you…

  12. I used to work with victims of abuse, I would see these beautiful women who by the looks of things had everything, then you would see the photos that were taken and the damage their husbands did. They always went back because of fear or because of the children. I learned from that experience that you never know what happens behind closed doors, I also learned to be grateful for what I have.

  13. wow gret article sad but inspiring to we should all be more aware of other and be grateful for what we have

  14. Nicely written. It’s always nice to be reminded that the grass on the other side is not always greener.

  15. Well written. We all know this and we all see it, but what do we do to change it? Thanks!

  16. It’s amazing isn’t how sometimes we can appear so different on the outside to all that is going on inside. x
