Hold on to your answer (until the end of this posting).
Some would say it depends as people complain about life while others dream about it. What is the answer?
When we were young life is black and white. There was a right and wrong answer. Life was good. As we got older, life became however more colorful and more complicated. No more easy answers. Only forced choices and compromises.
Does it have to be? Definitely not. Life is an inseparable whole even though at times it seems dichotomous. It is our life, and we choose how to live it. Life is not either or.
So the answer is that the glass is half full AND half empty.
