Full wave bridge rectifier

Where should the ground be placed in a full wave bridge rectifier ? I mean if the ground was placed at one end of the load resistor, then won't the other diode (which would be forward biased in one cycle) that leaves from that point( point of contact of the resistor and ground) be cut off since that diode is not having a forward voltage of 0.7 volts ?
