Do you think a person can be changed by bad luck and a hard life? How? Will they become happier? Sadder? Or does it depend on the person? Is it easy to stay happy when your life is hard?

It depends upon the person. Life can be hard sometimes. Luck changes for good or bad. It is how you deal with it that matters. I was dealt a bad hand a few months back. I decided not to let it bog me down. Although there were days when I really found it hard to get out of bed and face the world, I did it. I may not have had an ear to ear grin on my face, but at least I was up. Open yourself to happiness and it will come to you. Close yourself and the darkness will engulf you.

I think people are changed by things that happen in their lives. I havent had the easiest life and i'm not the same person i was before everything thats for sure. I think it makes you a stronger person in the end and it makes you maybe a little bit happier because your happy with the way things are going because you know they could always get worse.

You are right; counting your blessing is always important to remember to do. Thanks.

It really depends on the person, I think. Some people go into a downturn when facing adversity; others continue on a steady course or are even revitalized by the adversity, it seems to energize them and give them more determination to get the most out of life.
