It doesn't make sense to me

How can people with the good upbringing and life full of opportunities have it off so bad? Is it that the pampered can't handle things on their own and the impoverished are so calloused and scarred that they can trudge their way through anything? If you say to them, "You deserve to be happy." They respond with something along the lines of that they should be happy with the multitude of goodness in their life and that they must be some kind of greedy selfish ungrateful bastard to be unhappy. Well then what gives me the right to be happy in my shit life? If you ought to be happy by default because you've had "a good life" then I should be depressed and worthless by default for having my shit life. That's not how it works. There are other things that determin happiness in the life, not just how well off you are. There's this video I saw in Sunday school and it was about this rich man who had all this money and everything he wanted, but he was not happy because he had no friends and no one who loved him. The point is, just because you have a problem or hurt or feel lacking in something does not make you a bad person.

That's another thing. Why is it that I play such the victim but when it really comes down to it, I SO can take care of myself? Only because I've been doing it for so long (taking care of myself), and because of that I hate doing it. That doesn't mean that I'm incapable. Wow. There. I have my answer.
