I guess I am one of the fortunate ones. I tend to always look for the goodness in others. I always approach a person as a gift from God rather than fear them. I also know that there have always been problems in the past. I don't look misty eyed at previous centuries or at future centuries and think if only I lived then or could live then, because I know life on this earth was never, and will never be perfect. I know I am called to make the most of my life now and to deal with happiness, with challenges, and with life's detours the best I can. Life's extreme highs and lows can be dealt with much better if we realise that they are anomalies that can't always be repeated. Not every day is going to make me deliriously happy. Not every day is going to bring me to the depths of despair. Yes like all people, I want to live a life of happiness, but I know not everyday is going to be wonderful.
