The Trouble with Gratitude
By Hila Ratzabi
I’m rushing down the street, despite the pleasant weather and flowers blooming. No one else is on the street — I live in a peaceful, quiet, small city, yet I’m hurrying and stressed; I have somewhere to go.
And then I see the old man. He suddenly appears at the end of the block, turns the corner, inches forward as he leans his weight on his walker, lifting one leg slowly, slowly, then the other. My face softens, I immediately slow down, embarrassed by my hurrying.
A rush of thoughts and emotions flood me: “Oh, look at that man. Walking so slowly, he can barely move, while I’m practically running down the block. I should slow down. I should be grateful. After all, I’m healthy. My legs are working perfectly fine, well enough to get me where I’m going, and fast.”
But wait a minute. Am I really being grateful if what I’m thinking is, “Boy, am I glad I’m not that guy”? If, instead of appreciating my miraculously functioning body, and maybe cultivating some compassion for the stranger before me, I’m actually feeling pity for the poor man, shame at my energetic strides, and embarrassment at how hurried I must have appeared?
This was not the first time I’ve had trouble with gratitude. In fact, I’ve tried and “failed” at gratitude many times.
Here’s the problem: When I start to contemplate all the things I'm genuinely grateful for, I immediately fear they'll disappear. Because one day I will be that old person walking down the street. These legs won't always work so well. One day I'll lose all the wonderful things and people I love. Ouch. No wonder I’m covering up that fear with pity and shame—reality is too terrifying to admit.
To make matters worse, I’m just a tad superstitious that acknowledging the good in my life will somehow jinx it and bring me bad luck. I know, it doesn’t make sense, but it’s true...

Found it misleading about cost. Wouldn’t have downloaded it if I knew it was a hundred dollars.
I Love it so far.
As an uptight type A, I was skeptical but after reading Dan Harris’ book, I took the out of character leap of faith. I’ve found that the layout of courses with introductory videos, talks and guided meditations has given me a great start to my beginning practice. The pragmatism of the app and mindfulness teaching makes it so applicable for any novice to start a meditation practice and see instant benefits. For the cost of less than a stick of gum a day, I’ve received so much benefit.
5 Star. Still deciding on new format. Really like the short talks and the ability to ask coach questions. All the teachers are pros. A little expensive but didn’t hesitate to renew.
They ask for $99.00 per year within the first minute of use, how us that free?
After just 2 weeks I’m off all sleeping meds. If I get up to use the restroom at 2am I just do it again and fall asleep. Not sure I ever learned to do this as an adult. The only problem is if I try to do another meditation like mindful eating......I fall asleep. No more Benadryl or Tylenol pm or melatonin hang over. I bought the full 1 year subscription because it was so useful for me. These folks are doing good work! I’m an adult neurologist and recommend it to my patients almost daily. Highly recommended. No drug side effects with this.
It really does calm anxiety and helps you work through it! Love it!
I have been using this app for about a year and a half now. The recent update has brought that to a screeching halt. The new “visual update” is blinding even with my phone on the lowest setting. Yes, the “sleep” part is dark but you have to get there first. And, now the app pauses when my screen times out. If I’m trying to fall asleep I don’t want my phone lighting up the room. Nor do I want bright light first thing in the morning. Also, I was using Siri shortcuts to wake up & fall asleep. Can’t do that anymore. I sent requests to support but until these issues are fixed, I won’t be renewing my subscription. Two stars for phenomenal content, minus 3 for usability.
Add a search box! I like the app and the content but I spend almost as much time looking for a meditation as I do listening. The app is all browse and they’re constantly adding content (which is great), but it's a dog's breakfast in there. Need a better way to find meditations...
I’m sorry to say it and I’m not entirely sure exactly what it is about it, but I hate this app. I appreciate what it’s trying to do, but it stresses me out more than it helps. Before I begin, let me say that while I’ve struggled with it in the past, I’m not at all “closed off” to the idea of meditation, so this isn’t me just being stubborn... I mostly downloaded 10% to help me unwind before bed, but I don’t find the nighttime meditations helpful at all. The other meditations are okay, but nothing mind-blowing. Most of them just sound like someone reading off of a very generic script, which is fine if you find that soothing, but for me I just feel like I’m wasting my time. I’m don’t really know what I was expecting, but this isn’t it. I guess I was thinking that with the price being so high that it would be very unique and transformative in some way, but I just don’t think there’s anything abundantly special being captured here. What actually brought me here to write this review was lying down and trying to play a sleep meditation a few minutes ago (figured I’d try the app again after not using it for several months), but none of them would play more than 15 seconds before a loading screen would appear and just hang—NOT what I’d call a relaxing experience. I finally got one to play after closing and reopening the app, but I was so frustrated at that point and so dissatisfied with the content that I attempted to go to my settings to cancel my subscription, but when I clicked, it took me several times to get the link to go to iTunes, and all it said when I got there was that I “have no subscriptions.” To be fair, that last part is likely a fault on the part of Apple rather than 10%, but it’s still just another irritation that the connection in their app settings doesn’t work like it should. If you try this app, I sincerely hope it works for you, and I’m really glad to hear that it has helped so many people. Unfortunately for me, I just wasn’t one of them.
Just listened to the podcast for the first time in a while and heard about the introduction of the talks. Great addition.
A huge change and update which is great. Love the new Icon and the whole new feel to the App. Tons of content. Fantastic! Some think it’s expensive but when you consider the Coach support is limitless it’s super cheap - try to get that support outside an App.
This app is ok but asked you to buy a lot of things such as a yearly fee for this app. I do not appreciate having to pay for an app I only can on this app to learn to meditate and be one with my body not to see adds and buying scams.
I am keen on meditation and I like the idea of what this app was about. It wasn’t until I registered with my email address etc that it says $140 per year for access after 7 days. If you’d been upfront then I might have considered...but underhanded slick sales marketing gives me stress does not relieve my stress. So for the sake of my mindfulness I’m deleting the app, and recommend anyone considering a meditation app to consider another one - plenty of reasonably priced (or free) meditation apps out there.
This app is fantastic. I have enjoyed the 1 min counts and a lot of the other courses. Such a great help for helping to form habits and the teachers give insight and something to focus on.
I meditated till I levitated! Would you believe it? You should ! Wow 5 stars top jobs team members
The option for only a (substantial) annual fee has put me off going any further than the introductory course. Maybe look into monthly on quarterly payment types for problem who just don’t want to spend $140 for something they won’t know is completely right for them? It’s hard to determine within a week if it’s worth that kind of money.
This is a great app with a huge range of practises for meditating either as a noob or an experienced meditator. As I have progressed I’ve been excited by how useful the app is, particularly the coaching service. I hit a ceiling and wasn’t progressing and some quick tailored advice got me on track. Buy this app, use it daily and be kind to yourself.
The 10% Happier App has changed my life. It includes a wide range of meditations from a variety of professional and expert teachers. The quality of content and usability of the app is highly commendable. Thanks so for much to the 10% Happier team! I highly recommend this app for meditation and improving mental health.
I’ve tried a bunch of meditation apps and this is my favourite so far. Not only are the teachers great, but the meditations have heart, which is something that is missing for the more secular apps. Joseph Golstein and Sharon Salzberg are true lights to meditation and my life. I wholeheartedly recommend 10% Happier app.
I don’t need to hear the credentials of the guide. Start right into the meditation.
I am new to meditation and I’m learning and loving every minute of it with the 10% happier app!!!!!
This app is sketchy as heck. I didn’t want a subscription, and checked multiple times to be sure I didn’t have one. The store didn’t show anything and that’s where the app takes you. Today, I get a $100 charge for a subscription! Tried to email from the app...nothing happens. I had to go to Apple to get a link that worked. I’m sure I have just been robbed of $100 bucks. No mindfulness will help me pay my bills.
I guess happiness costs $100. Other than that, does the app start automatically charging u? Right when I download the app? Because I didn’t click the free trial yet and I’m worried that it automatically starts, then I’ll have to pay 100$
I’m so thankful for this. I have “family sharing” on my Apple account. How do I share this with my wife? It’s asking her to make a separate subscription. We can only afford the one yearly payment at this time.
There is life in everyone. And everyone has a powerful mind that can shape, bend, contour and flex to many things that it goes through. This meditation app is my very first wellness app, and also am a beginner in meditation. It is worth every penny for an annual subscription. If you can spend $5-$10 a day for your coffee, then you can easily afford this app for your mind. Let there be calmness in a world full of chaos. Absolutely beautiful app.
Learning to negotiate that we need each other. That going it alone isn't easy. Working together is what we should accept.
If you are looking to live happier, this will help👌
The developers work hard to keep the content relevant.
As a beginner, I need all the guidance I can get. I love that the teachers are right there when I need or want to meditate and or be mindful. There are so many ways and techniques. I’m so grateful!
While I’ve nothing against the hippy dippy approach to meditation, this app embraces everyone. It’s easy and user friendly. There’s a huge range of options without being overwhelming. You can choose to have a guided or silent meditation from as little as 1 minute long. The humour makes it even more pleasant! Overall it’s a great way to press pause on your day and I’ll be recommending it to my friends.
Nice and easy!! It's a really good start if you you want to get involved in meditación.!! I've found myself being more relax and cheerful which is awesome.!!
Simple but great app. Lots of great meditations led by great people.
Really enjoying this app so far. It's perfect for someone looking to get meditation. The content is excellent throughout.
I'm thoroughly enjoying this app, and am benefiting already.
Has really helped me to make a habit of meditation practice & I really enjoy dan's sense of humour. Makes the videos informative & fun to watch
