While I appreciate your posts, pinkeye, I still think it's better to be "myself," that is, the cynical nihilist that I am. Your suggested approach seems to be a form of denial, a "look on the bright side" philosophy that I just can't do. I'm usually suspicious of happy people, actually. They seem so, well, unrealistic. I'm not incapable of optimism, but it's an extremely rare feeling in my life. I want it to be authentic, not induced by drugs or self-imposed delusion.
