“Think of the starving children in Africa”
“Finish your food. Think of the starving children in Africa.”
Did your parents ever say something like this to you when you were a kid?
I’m guessing the answer is “yes.”
Not only did you have enough food to eat when you were growing up, you probably still have enough food to eat now.
And the fact that you’re reading this means you have internet access, which also means you’re in the lucky 1/3 of the world’s population that does.
The point of this post, however, isn’t to list all of the things you have to be thankful for. Instead, it’s to make you aware that being thankful for the wrong reasons can cause you to be a worse person.
