If a) we construct our reality to a large extent, and b) we can, if we’re clever, always find data to support whatever position we choose, then why not decide to be happy and construct our reality around that? I’m not a moron – I know it’s not that simple. But if all you’ve got is minor complaints, you might want to consider a shift in perspective. Just be prepared for the miserable seeking company; they’ll try their darnedest to wipe that stupid smile off your face. In fact, you may find that you need a whole new group of friends.
