What do we want in life? Is it simply to be able to look forward to the day yet to come with a sense of hope that it might be better than the one it follows?
I was told once that it's not our lot in life to be happy, but to live through what life hands us and be thankful for what we have. I think that's a crock of shit, personally. Life is what we make of it for ourselves, and anyone who accepts anything less than the best has given up on themselves. Their soul is already dead - it's just going to take some time for their bodies to figure it out, and die along with them.
You can be truly happy in life, if you choose to.
