We're delighted when things work out well and we gnash our teeth when they don't. Yet, if we knew the inadequacies of our frames of reference, and were more inclined to question our judgment, we wouldn't be so fast to jump to conclusions and express our joys and sorrows. The truth is that we can't always tell what's good for us. Which means, of course, that we can't always tell what's bad for us either! You're about to see what's good about something you've been inclined to reject.
