This is a life-long question/issue with me. I am generally a happy person, and have not much empathy for those with sad sack faces. My motto is "build a bridge and get over it". Cold hearted some would say, and yes, I guess I really am pretty unfeeling when it comes to stuff like that. I work hard at trying to understand unhappiness in others, to offer caring help, but in the end, I usually get bored, frustrated and ready to walk away. My laughter doesn't understand sadness.

Can you laugh about not understanding?
