Gratitude has the power to change your outlook on a situation. Actually, a better way of putting it is that gratitude has the power to change the way we experience any situation. Joy enables us to cope and hold on or even smile in the midst of some situations that leave others in awe. Being grateful may not change your circumstances, but it can change the way your perceive events, circumstances and other's responses. Understanding, that no one is happy or jovial everyday, every second, every minute and every hour of their lives, and to expect that, would be Toxic Positivity... but we can approach living our lives with a goal to pursue peace and inner-joy.
Even the Bible encourages us to "if it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men" (Romans 12:18 NKJV). This tells us that God has given us some power and ability, to experience a sense of hope, joy and peace with a renewed-transformed mind.
With God, All things are possible! We can strive for perfection, inner-happiness, and purpose but often experience the opposite or short-lived happiness because we are missing the GOD-FACTOR... If you have been skating through life without connecting and staying in touch with the Father, Creator and Life-giver, then this is definitely one main reason you may find it difficult to experience inner-joy that helps you to keep it together.
