In moments like that, the only way to feel better is to think about a worse case. Like, by example, that little chinese girl who got rolled over twice in a populous street, caught on video, and no one helped. Probably the saddest and most cruel thing I saw in my life.
It's kind of sad how people use other people's misfortunes to feel better about their life instead of doing something more positive to feel joy, such as making someone else smile... :( Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go read some more FMLs so I can forget my troubles.
Bystander effect - the more people around to see something, the more the individual assumes someone else will help. I know this doesn't help you after the fact, but you can't take it personally.
