It's not so much the riding that's bad as the falling off...

Right. "Stay upright" is good advice. And if you fall, get up.
Keep riding.

Or to rephrase:

You can live in Mr. Keats world, where, when you are in pain, you seek to
feel better and be happier - through snuggling with your significant other,
through food, through some recreational chemicals, whatever - and you feel
positive about the world and see that people are good to each other.

You can live in Mr. Sherman's world, where, when you are in pain, you hold
it in, and don't trust others. You then feel pessimistic about the world and
see mostly violence.

I'd rather live where Mr. Keats does.

I have undoubtedly witnessed more violence than 99.9% of this NG's
users and I still agree with Tom K. If the world were as dark and
violent a place as you seem to believe it to be the human species
would have been extinct long ago. I always find it amusing in a sad
kind of way that people who haven't been in a fight since grammar
school, have never been the victim of intentional violence or
inflicted violence on others, have never seen anyone die violently,
and live- it would seem- in an area where the worst thing likely to
happen to them is someone being rude to them at the Starbucks decry
our "violent nature".

Well, perhaps yours does. But for many of us, reality is quite nice
indeed.

To a certain extent, we create our own realities. You can control
much of what happens to you. And more important, you can control your
response to what happens to you.

Yeah, a world where a third of the people do not even have clean
drinking water or sanitation due to the greed of others. Where there are
too many religious and tribal wars to count. Where the supposed "leader
of the free world" destroys the infrastructure of a small country,
killing one million and making 4 million more refugees. Where more
parents than one can count torment their children.

Live in your Pollyanna world if it makes you feel better, but do not
confuse it with reality.
