    Peace of mind comes at a steep price so no. I rather have constant stress.

    It seems like you are confused. Peace of mind is something attained. If you dislike your current life and overall mindset, strive diligently toward harmony and a better subjective existence. To echo your words, "why would you not?".

    I already have both, so I'm not sure how to answer.

    I've already done that.
    Worked out quite well.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I'd like my life as I know it with multiple additions, "peace of mind" (as defined by myself) being one of them.

    Although I already have it to an extent.

    Most likely destructive ones at that.

    My son is 9 and the smallest kid on his basketball team. He sure isn't the most athletic, there are other kids faster, better dribblers, better shooters and who handle the ball more. He is the hardest working, though, and is the team pest. During their last game of the season they were playing their neighborhood rivals. They were behind by 4 going into the last period, and I noticed he got this look in his eyes that I had never seen before. During that period, he stole the ball four times, had two assists to other teammates, drew a charging foul against the best kid on the other team -- one about 8 inches taller than he -- and they ended up winning by 4. Even though he didn't score in the period, his teammates all came up to him after the game and high fived him -- this for the little kid who was just being a pest.

    I wouldn't trade watching that for ANYTHING.

    Well, technically you don't have to give up anything to have peace of mind, so I wouldn't.

    I don't think it's honest if you 100% hate your life because there are always good things going on. It all depends on your perspective. If you hate life completely, then your perspective needs to change, and not the circumstances.

    Yes. I would give up anything for it.
    But peace of mind isn't in the cards for me. Not in this lifetime.
    I've come to terms with that.
