Life has its own mechanism for approximately balancing the desirable and undesirable virtues in life. While an everlasting bout of happiness is an impossibility, a period of agony with no end is equally impossible. The factor of approximation in the equation lends us a precious space to manipulate the balance in our favor: shrewd people do everything in their capacity to rationally multiply the moments of happiness in their lives and vice varsa.
Moreover, I can look back to the past with some degree of detachment and I have found intense interest of people in such accounts of others, however unimportant he/she may be to their lives. Also, such writing is a sort of catharsis for me. For propriety’s sake, I omit or disguise some details and generalize some specificities but that little impacts the overall narrative, I hope.
