At the end of the day, we can't ignore the fact that life is full of contradictions -- if there are good moments in life, there are bad moments as well. If life was devoid of difficulties, we would have never understood the importance of happiness; the importance of getting what we want. A person doesn't understand the value of success until he experiences failure. Difficult moments crop up in everybody's life. It's up to us whether we want to give up on life owing to these difficulties, or face them and live life on our own terms.
