A particle executes simple harmonic motion. Let P be a point near the mean position and Q be a point near an extreme. The speed of the particle at P is larger than the speed at Q. Still the particle crosses P and Q equal number of times in a given time interval. Does it make you unhappy?

No, it does not make me unhappy. It is because the speed of a particle executing simple harmonic motion, is independent of the number of times it passes the mean or/ and extreme positions.
