Thought Questions, day 70: Can there be happiness without sadness? Pleasure without pain? Peace without war?

I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!

    Day 70: Can there be happiness without sadness?  Pleasure without pain?  Peace without war? I think that there can be, but we don’t appreciate it as much. Human beings are kind of selfish and we tend to have a very poor sense of our blessings unless we can compare them to something terrible, so without that contrast of war or poverty we wouldn’t be as happy, I think. It’s quite sad that we choose to view our lives through that lens!
