#628 Bad Year Can't Complain

Zen Museum #628-Bad Year Can't Complain By Dutch Den Bosch Artist Zen Dageraad

Last year was
The worst I've experienced
But for the most part
My life is great
So now I can't complain
Without feeling like a loser
Which is
Yet another thing
To complain about

Comparing your state of mind from year to year seems nearly impossible. Last year might've been the worst year of my life (so far) because of some anxiety problems that now constantly seem present. It wouldn't surprise me if it were, but I'm uncertain how I could compare how I felt like as a 4, or 12-year-old. So, I'll settle for calling it just a bad year. Maybe one of the worst things about it is that I've got it good in many ways; I work on so much satisfying art, live comfortably, and have little stress in my daily life. That may not sound bad to you, but it is -- now I feel like a loser when complaining. And complaining is one of the most fun things you can do.
