I agree that you should stay positive and that is definitely not the same as being naive or foolishly optimistic. It sounds as if there is scientific justification to be hopeful. Reality is what it is and, as we have struggled to understand over the last four hundred years, shit happens regardless of our heinous crimes and misdemeanors or our practice of love and compassion. But the value achieved from the latter brings support and caring when it is needed and you always have the option to accept or politely decline. But it is strengthening to know that you have earned those options.
