    I am 24 male from israel , and 2 years ago I lived in England for 6 months.
    Here it's sunny , and in England it was dark and cloudy all the time .
    I know you are born into it but how you handle that weather ?
    It depressed me...
    It looked like a gothic movie where it's dark all the time..

    Compared to many places it's pretty average. I think searing heat, constant freezing temperatures or the risk of tornados/hurricanes etc would be much worse.

    It's kinda meh over here I guess. It doesn't get properly hot or cold, and rains a lot. I do miss snow in the winter and seasons that are distinguishable from each other based on what they look like.

    Well, think of it like this:

    Britain won't be involved in the wars over water that Israel will most likely have to contend with inside the next forty years.

    Deaths in Britain from heatstroke are minimal, unlike Israel:

    The wistful sense of melancholy that the British climate brings is partly responsible for much of the great art, music, poetry and literature that has come out of the British isles.
    Talk to me when Israel has contributed anything similar to the world.

    We get sunny weather! It's lovely and sunny today. It's also 6 degrees Celsius here so quite chilly.

    Being sunny all the time means you take it for granted, whereas we rarely get it so it's more special. Same with snow.

    We don't particularly have extreme weather - it doesn't get too cold and it doesn't get too hot. We do get quite a lot of rain but mostly we manage just fine.

    I think you are a living proof to what living in a clody weather can do to your soul

    Temperate maritime climate with cloud cover comparable to your typical island. It isn't bad, just a bit boring. We complain too much.

    Compare that to somehere like New York, which can experience pretty nasty blizzards/cold spells or loads of deaths from heat stroke in the summer.
