Balance.

Sometimes I equate happiness with blissful ignorance or an inability to see things for what they truly are. I am very much the sensitive type -- I ache for all suffering, take others' problems on as my own, and basically brood a lot and want to save the world. At times I fear "getting well" would mean to lose my ability to care about others and the deeper things in life.

So, I don't want to be Pollyanna, but I would like to be me -- not-at-all superficial, still ponder deeply, but be able to find joy in life and not feel guilty about it or like I do not deserve it in the midst of great global suffering.

Think any doctor could whip that out on a prescription pad for me?
