Be happy you only have one life to live, you shouldn't walk around sad all the time. You should be happy you are alive today. Even do things are going bad out there for a lot of us it still things you can be happy about like (you still got a job, it might not be what you want it to be, but it's a job). Be happy and believe in GOD things will be ok.

I agree that being happy is important to all of us. I think that it is also good for our own personal well being. It is healthy to have a good outlook and attitude toward life. Having negativity will just cause us a set back and then we will not be able to move forward with our lives. You are right when you say that we should believe in God and things will be alright. We need the power of the Lord to help get us by and to hold our hands through the hard times. Many people deal with struggles everyday but they don't believe. The ones that have the faith seem to be able to surmount the challenges a lot better than non-believers. I admit that I have had my doubts in the past because there have been a lot of problems that I have been through in my life. But leaning on a higher power has helped me quite a bit. No. We shouldn't walk around sad all the time. It brings us down and also has an impact on the world around us.
