There is an inherent sadness in life-and a lot of destruction- but I think the mentally well and healthy people have managed to come to terms with that. I don't think they take glee in it- that's not what I'm saying. That would be very sick. But the mentally well are not overwelmed by feeling "doomed", nor are they clinically, dysfunctionally depressed either. I get the drift that they try to notice kindness, try to be kind themselves...

You might enjoy reading some basic, clear Buddhist books- they comment on this, and one might even say this is the big question that they grapple with. A few titles are: Buddhism Without Beliefs, Buddhism Plain and Simple--but a great uplifting and thought-provoking book is The Tao of Pooh. It's a classic, easy, funny, and always makes me feel better.
