This question depends upon a individual man. How he wants to go ahead with his life. How he wants to carry on his responsibilities in life.
In other words life is what you make it. You can't predict it. Hard work and patience is needed to maintain a good time in life.
There are many things in life which are very much important. Happiness and sadness are a part of life.
Some may choose to die early, some may want to live longer. So, it is very important to say that life is good for some reason and bad too.
