Does everyone have a right to be happy? So, do we? What if it interferes with someone else's happiness? Do you think life seems to set up an "order" in which people can be happy? The rich, the smart, the intelligent, the pretty? Can people live without happiness? Why does it seem some people always get everything. It really isnt envy or anything, but just relative to what you consider good, and then someone just walks in and gets it. Someone around you always gets those things you consider "good" or "fascinating" or "beautiful." It's not their fault; theyre happy now so what do they care. Its not your fault because you tried to go for that specific something (or someone)... is anyone/thing at fault for this? It's not that life is supposed to be fair, but can anyone/thing be blamed for this? The chances of all this about people taking things from you happening consecutively are pretty low. But if it happens, would you feel as if somehow you dont have a right to be happy? I really really did use to think that "Life is what you make of it." Now, not so much.
