Do you ever feel like some people live a charmed life where nothing ever happens to them. Then others if it can it does go wrong. Why is that?

Sometimes, but I always remember the grass isn't greener elsewhere.  Even if it seems miniscule compared to others, everyone has problems in life.

I know what you're saying is right, but I swear it's like this chick could walk through crap and come out smelling like roses.

You are right but my BIL and SIL always seem to smell like roses even when they're covered in shit!

I prefer to think that even those with a "charmed life" have problems too and that life is as easy or as hard as you make it depending on your response to events.

Everyone has difficulties, I don't think I believe in a charmed life.

Choices.  It's all about choices.  Everyone has stuff that happens to them.  It's how you choose to deal with these events that determin how your life will go.  Some people enjoy/get stuck in the victim mentality, and then can't pull themselves out of the situation their in.  I don't believe anyone has a totally charmed life.  Some people choose to use what their given to improve their circumstances.

My life is pretty charmed. But, I still have problems, I just have learned to laugh at them.

People only show you what they want you to see.

Things always happen although it's less likely to with the right attitude/making the right choices. I've noticed that the most negative people tend to attract the most negative things.

You have to remember that things are not always what they seem. Also, life is about choices.Most things that happen, are a direct result of the choices we make.
