"Fundamental Happiness" does not have to mean you walk around feeling blissfully ecstatic all the time. It just means you're secure in who you are without needing to be in a relationship to validate it. It does not mean you can't be hurt or disappointed by something that happens in a relationship. Having a bad day or feeling sad ABOUT something does not mean that you can't be FUNDAMENTALLY happy with who you are in general.
I get pissed off ABOUT things quite easily but I'm happy with who I am in general.
It has nothing to do with "crossing a gunfight to get a second cup of coffee". OTOH, if you are THAT afraid of gunfire, maybe you should consider giving up coffee altogether, or perhaps switching to decaf. Stimulants HAVE been linked to paranoia.
