some are accepting,
while others, when faced with joy,
just can’t help flinching

I'm one of the “others” unfortunately.
I'm one who always waits for “the other shoe” when something good happens. It's conditioning, and a lifetime of experience.
Of course, nothing good lasts, as does nothing bad, but I think we tend to dwell on the negative rather than embrace the positives. Human nature is a bitch.
PJ – thanks. sometimes I'm one of the others too — part of the reason for writing this.
Anthony – I feel similarly conditioned, but I've been trying for a long while to go against that grain.
I'm one of the others a little more than sometimes. Anthony's “other shoe” comment describes me well.
isn't that the truth.
