They are members of Law of Attraction, in other words. We search for them since the age of understanding till we die. Optimists can find them easily, i believe.

    Fear and doubt, despite their vastness in us, in opposite manner, at last will grow something good in us only when we try to do something to eliminate them. It is a very challenging and interesting task to eliminate one fear after another and one doubt after another to pursue what we are in desperately need of --- love and happiness.

    So, they all have to exist.

    you ask "How would this world have been if there was only love and happiness?" well it would be somehow a disaster,happiness would lead to conformity ,we wouldn't have the motivation to fight for our goals, because everything would be "happiness" already. Happiness and love are wonderful feelings but is not everything in life, what it counts the most is the effort we put to find happiness and love, the most valuable things we have are the ones we have fight for to obtain. If happiness and love were the only thing in this world, it would lose its value!?
