If you have ever been told yourself to cheer up or be happy , look on the bright side or count your blessings then this one's for you.
If you think happiness leads to a better life then i must say you are wrong ! As happiness is only one type of emotion we have to experience in life . Other emotions like anger, joy , excitement , motivation and surprisingly sadness are just as necessary as happiness .
So why we try so hard acquire happiness?
Since childhood , people has taught us that success leads to happiness but i want to question this perception of society . Is success the only way to become happy ? No! Its a big no. We could be happy even after failing or falling hundred of times .
We just have to give happiness a chance to find us. Trying too hard to be happy actually makes you sad because of the fact that the happiness standards becomes too high leading to disappointment .
If you want to know my opinion i would rather suggest you to love yourself and happiness will definately come , looking for you . Experience happiness naturally by enjoying your cup of coffee, listening to nature or music , valuing laughter and being present in every moment . Focus on putting yourself in situations where you can enjoy little things in life .
Ask yourself, are you wasting much of your time hunting for happiness ? this will only leads to being let down .
Don't go for searching happiness as you will find that it will run away from you than you can chase it . Instead appreciate the happiness that is already around you , find happiness inside you only . Focus on yourself and try to help poor or needy . It will definately give you satisfaction and last but not the least try to live in yourself , try to bring out the best of you , focus on your goals , your hobbies , your dreams , your aspirations , etc.
