    Perhaps:

    So, thank God, things could be worse / it wasn't as bad as it seemed /it wasn't half as bad (as it might have been) / it wasn't really that bad.

    See:

    Lily Brett's autobiographical novel "Things could be worse" was translated into German with the title "Alles halb so schlimm".
