Good Fortune - PJ Harvey

Which requires more mental strength: the ability to withstand misfortune or good fortune?

which requires more mental strength: the ability to withstand misfortune, or the ability to cope with good fortune?
the stamina to get through a hard trial in life, or the ability to accept good fortune?

For people whose reaction to misfortune is cooler than their reaction to something good happening and things taking a good turn..what is the underlying issue and problem and how can they better cope with good fortune?

Is the psychology at work in such a case, a fear of misfortune visiting upon oneself again? Is it the sheer power of having become accustomed to misfortune? Is it a lack of confidence or "self esteem" if self esteem exists?

I'd like to hear your thoughts.

well, both things will pass with time, so I'm not sure mental strength is really the issue, it's will power.
