well, just reading this post made me feel happier (and i thought that was impossible! jk). of course, we can't feel all this happiness if we haven't also felt all those negative things like hate and stuff. to understand one, you must experience the other. so, the next time you think you've hit rock bottom, you think life couldn't get any worse, just remember: however bad it is now, that's how good it can become. that didn't really come out the way i've got it in my head, but that's the best i could do.
