For some of us (arguably, a lot of us), happiness hasn't come naturally. Whether we've struggled with depression, addiction issues or a lifelong bout of low-grade melancholia, daily life may feel more like a ride on the Titanic than a pleasure cruise.
But that's okay. Some roads are rockier than others -- some journeys, longer. But even if it doesn't come easily, happiness is worth the struggle. It's worth striving, working, fighting to feel better.
