Life can be hard and beautiful and messy, but hopefully, it will be long. If it is, you will see that it's unpredictable, and that the dark periods comes, but they abate - sometimes with a lot of support - and the tunnel widens, allowing the sun back in.

But if you keep waiting for the doors to be opened for you, I think you'll have a hard time finding single happiness, let alone that double portion.
