Uncle Angst and his lovely wife Anti-Angst

Some times it makes me feel weird and even a little bit guilty to be so happy. If you read a lot of Live Journal, you'll notice that unhappiness and dissatisfaction abound. I have explored using Random for hours recently, just trying to get a sense of how people are feeling, and I see a lot of pain about work, relatives, mates, and often, everythimng at once. A lot of people are confused or hurting. It may have something to do with the demographics of Llive Journal.Who knows?

I have family members who spend a lot of time in that kind of emotional state, and I try to be as caring and supportive as I can. Some times when we're talking, though, if I do my share of talking about what's going on in my life, it starts to feel awkward because of the contrast. Maybe I just need to figure out how to be more sensitive, or not to worry about it too much.

I'm generally happy, elated, or at least content. I'd feel like an ass if this sounded too much like a complaint, so I won't belabor the point.
