What screws us up most in life, is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.

Yes, yes, yes. Too many have preconceived notions on how things are supposed to be or what they deserve. Never considering that they could do things to improve their life.

Seeing this in youngsters I guess is pretty normal. They haven't learned to take charge / take responsibility. It's sad to see it adults however.

I wonder sometimes if it's just that no one has shown some people how.

I have no doubt that you've nailed it!
I know it's got to be hard for less fortunate kids when they see other kids that have everything they dream of. It's up to Mom and Dad to not be so materialistic, take pride in who they are - not so much in what they have - that kind of thing.

Oddly, these things are best learned IMO by
Thanking others
Helping others
Appreciating what I have
Noticing my blessings
Knowing MY gifts [of the Spirit]
Serving others.

Have a wonderful Christmas Gun!

Very much so. There is no formula in life in how it should turn out. You set your goals and you deal with the set backs and failures but keep striving each day to reach those goals.

There's no short cuts like the young generation are seeking. Laziness = failure.
