    I can be happy but then I see other people being arrogant ***** and that brings me right back down again. This happens regularly because there's so many arrogant ***** out there. I feel like I can never be happy because even if every darned thing goes perfect for me, as it has been for the past year or so, I still get brought down by arrogant *****.

    I should ignore them, I know, which I do, but this is a feeling thing, and I can't help the massively brought down, angry, sad feeling I get when I see people being arrogant *****

    Something that really helped me (so it might now work for you) is a specific ted talk which talks about our mental model, where we feel inclined to do x and then we'll be happy. It's about accepting life and improving your outlook on what you have, I don't know if it will be helpful to you, but I just thought I'd share

    There are always going to be arrogant, rude and horrible people out there. It's how it is, no matterh ow frustrating it is. The best hting you can do is not be like that yourself, and strive to be the best you can be.

    Thanks, I'll take a look.

    I think it's a mentality problem, I just need to figure out how to have a better mentality to solve this problem.

    It's just about trying and seeing for what works for you our brains are very complex and it takes time to deal with it.
