Is there a secret pill to make all your woes and worries disappear? No, though it would be nice if there was. Life is full of ups and downs along with a lot of just plain flat land. How you take it is what makes the difference between a happy life and one you either struggle to get through or just exist in. To take life and its challenges too serious is to make life too much of a chore. To take it too lightly is to let it get chaotic and out of control. It takes a balance between the two as much as it takes a healthier perspective. Your perception of the world you live in and your life is a big factor on if your can be happy or not. Too much cynicism and negativity will keep one trapped in a never ending battle. Too much of a carefree attitude is also bad because you will let too much go. Finding the right balance and mix is not easy and is different for each person.
Just be who you are and let no one change or criticize you or your personality. For that is what makes you who you are and without being your true self you will be unhappy and be stuck in plain existence mode. Cherish the things you are blessed with both great and small.
May you find the balance you need and may you be happy.
