OP: You are right. It's a good reminder for us all to stay on the positive side of life. That's a good pep talk but most people have very valid reasons for being jaded. I just got shot down by a woman who I was getting along nice with.....we had A BUNCH of things IN COMMON. She was one of the very few in my area I could say that about and POOF!
And again, I keep noticing the ones who complain the loudest are usually very negative individuals....therefore not ATTRACTIVE to others...and then they wonder why we prefer to stay away from them!
Who ever said to themselves: "Oh, look at that very angry and jaded person...it's hot, I want him/her in my life to bring me down to their level..."
No...don't think so. When I see one of them...I run the other way!
So now logically I guess I'm supposed to be overjoyed and skipping down the streets? No. Some people have very valid reasons for being jaded despite that some refuse to accept that everyone shouldn't be happy happy joy joy no matter what the circumstances. Some people might have health issues and might not have the luxury of waiting for eternity to find someone. This is our ONE CHANCE we have called "life" not a game. People have the RIGHT to feel what they feel.
