Everyone wants happiness. No one wants pain. But you can't have a rainbow, without a little rain. In order to have joy and beauty in this life we must also experience pain and sadness. The positive things in life would not be as wondrous if we did not experience the negative aspects as well. Life is full of ups and downs, and the deepest lows make the highest highs that much more special and rewarding. If all you ever experience is the good things and you never have rain in your life then you would take the rainbows for granted, never realizing that you were missing out on a greater joy and richness because of this. No one looks forward to the pain that life can bring but this pain is invaluable, it makes us appreciate what we have and it helps us treasure the good times even more. Remember that when the rain comes it is always followed by a rainbow.
