    Been there, done that. It may come about as you age and form your character traits more solidly. Life is a learning experience, and if you allow it to take you on unexpected rough rides, without panicking and trying to avoid the hard times, peace of mind will come to you one day. It's the difficult things in life that form who we are. They develop your character, make you more understanding and tolerant of the imperfections of others (and especially those of yourself), and make you a genuinely loving human.

    I agree. Adversity builds strength and compassion, though it doesn't feel that way at first.

    Yes. At first it just ticked me off. To me, the secret of happiness is to first learn how to love and accept yourself- just the way you are, and not striving for perfection, and then is becomes easy to love others, which makes one become better naturally.

    I already have peace of mind, without giving up my life as I know it. But, maybe if I lived in a country at war(for example), I would want to move to one which is not at war.
