      I have to work at it. But trying to help you is a worthy goal.
  • cause it helps to try
  • That would be your opinion or assumption. The majority of the world does not view life that way. They all have a positvie point of view and hope.
  • because there is still hope in you that’s why you keep on trying.
  • Because the alternative is giving up. Where there's life there's hope. Remember when Pandora in Greek myth let all the evils escape from the box only hope was left inside. That is because we need hope to go on.
  • You're a pessimist to think that everything under the sun is meaningless.
