Kids in a Third World Country Reading Our #FirstWorldProblems Is Heartbreaking

Pin It
The whole idea of #FirstWorldProblems is a little bourgeoisie to begin with. If you're not familiar with the whole thing, Urban Dictionary defines first world problems as, well exactly what it sounds like, "problems from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at."

So, the concept is there and we all know it in theory when we're hash-tagging about how frustrated we are that we can't get a good WiFi signal, but this video brings it to life and will make us all think twice before we post another first world problem ever again.

As it turns out, the mere fact that we have the luxury of grabbing our phone and posting our gripes to social media is totally foreign to so many people around the world.

This video, uploaded by an organization that helps provide clean water to people in need, shows kids in a third world country reading real first world problems that people have posted and the irony is as shocking as it is upsetting.

The vid has over 5 million views and in addition to bringing attention to this incredibly important issue, it's something that really makes us all take pause and think before we complain about any hiccups we might have with any of the luxuries we enjoy on a daily basis.
