I agree with you in that it is impossible for LHC to have a worry-free and contented life.Originally Posted by Yeade
My impression is that if it were anyone else in LHC's place (being wrong accused, terminally ill, losing one's love, etc), they would have been devastated or perhaps become very depressed. LHC coped with these very trying events and the low points of his life with humor and acceptance even when things are not at all hopeful. He didn't turn sour or angry or destructive. (Though, he did became briefly embittered in LPZ's grand-dad's place - Luoyang).
Perhaps, it's part nature and part coping strategy that he likes to enjoy life one moment at a time. He enjoys drinking, so he drinks. He is carefree in that he's not ambitious for power or money. He'd rather be happy than have too much responsibility. But even there, he's bowed down by so many obligations to people because he is deeply loyal, remembers people's kindness and is willing to sacrifice his life to help another.
He'd rather be free but in reality, he's not free at all because of his sense of responsibility for the people he loves.
