At Least This Post is Short

Are the tears of joy a person feels subtracted from the tears of anguish they have also shed? If the amount should come out even - does that negate the pain? or the joy?

Why do some of the most dismissive sentences begin with these two words "At least" and why do we usually only hear them when we are having a difficult time?

I have to admit I sometimes find myself saying "at least" & I feel like I should slap myself, because it does feel so dismissive. (((hugs))) sorry you're going through a rough spot right now.
