For some reason, psych majors and practicing psychologists seem to be some of the most unstable people I know. And I've known a few personally fairly well, as well as been to see some professionally. I realize that I'm much more functional in the real world than they are, and usually much happier.

Happy(tm) is relative, and every once in a while we all need a reminder how good most of us have it.
