In fact if everything is always love and unicorns then that person is very possibly deluded and not in a proper state of happiness. For example, though my life is the best life ever and anyone who disagrees gets punched out onto a motorway there are still times where i'm sad or angry at something. Simply put, the positive cannot exist without the negative.
Often i find that a person who feels like their life is a bunch of crap is usually on the other side of this and not in a state of habit where they properly acknowledge the good in their life, instead choosing only to mull in all the crappier parts of their existence; either that or they're not creating opportunities for good in their life.
Regardless, a crap life is usually a matter of perspective. A lot of americans and europeans (weasel words, i apologise) think that life is bad and crime is on the increase and all sorts of issues usually relating to health, fear and financial stability, yet compared to places like Nigeria, we couldn't have it better, and still still they managed to keep smiling in the face of it all
far better than most countries.
Believe me, we all still have problems and we shouldn't deny these just because others have it worse and yet still persevere and prosper. Just remember to keep track of the good in your life too. I''ll admit it's harder but only because we don't usually mull around thinking about how great a time we're having, for th simple reason that we're usually too busy have such a good time.
