Why must everything have negatives and positives? Is there truly no correct or best path in life?
cause thats the way life is
Well, yes there is. To walk with Jehovah God is to lead a blessed life. Remember what Jehovah promised his people about seeking out “the good way.” He said: “Walk in it, and find ease for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16) That “ease” does not mean an easy life that is filled with pleasures and luxuries. No. God provides something far better, something that the wealthiest among mankind rarely find. To find ease for your soul is to find inner peace, joy, satisfaction, and spiritual fulfillment. Such ease means that you can be confident that you have chosen the best path in life. Such peace of mind is a rare blessing in this hard world!
Positive and negative is a matter of viewpoint. Stop having opinions set in concrete and a lot of that goes away.

Paths can be different for each person. It is not for us to judge.
There are many true paths "in life;" for example, Mohammad (owbp) gave a pithy statement about the "latter days"--many "false paths" (in the Abrahamic religions), and one "true path" in each of the three. Here's a well-researched "true path" in everyday life: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_hierarchy_of_needs Kindly note that self-actualization asks continual mastery of deficit conditions, on several levels. These are challenges or "negatives" that must be dealt with. In terms of faith, God, there are many true paths; as one might well guess, the true religions are a primary target of nefarious forces, hence many religious leaders are under pressure to compromise...and not a few do. Some resources: The Path of Silence; Mere Christianity; Runaway Realization; Beams from Meher Baba; Autobiography of a Yogi; Answers by Mother Meera; The Path of the Higher Self.
the best path in life is subjective
