We hold unto things too much,sometimes to our own detriment.Happiness is not to be fought for.At least most of the time( find out below).Many times we do not realize this as we continue struggling.Happiness is wrongly attached to unimportant things.We feel that if we can get something or reach some height of fulfilment of some sort that we will be happy.At the end of the day we find out that after getting to that place, we are still unhappy.It is by our lack of understanding of what happiness means/is that we feel this way.This is not saying that ones shouldn’t have goals rather that happiness is not dependent on situation.
You cannot force happiness or struggle for it.Letting go is a way of healing pains and soothing wounds.Things fall back into their right place when we don’t constantly try to wield things by our desires.The peace in having a free mind without judgements and attachments creates happiness.HAPPINESS RESULTS FROM NOT JUDGING YOURSELF.There is this live and let live mentality you would see in many happy people.The love comes naturally,it is not forced.Love should always come naturally.
Sometimes we try too hard.We fight too hard.We hold on to our fears/aspirations/believes too strongly.We gasp too fast.And we let go way to slow.What do you know of happiness if you are bound by…whatever it is you are bound by.When you feel like(insert thing)makes/breaks you,you can’t be happy.We must let go of limitations to inner satisfaction.Happiness is falling in love with oneself unconditionally.Eventhough you do not sense a lot of love from other,you have to be your best fan.
I think and think and think, I‘ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
A few times,happiness is to be fought for.But these times are rare which would be known when they arrive.These quotes below highlights on that.
Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.
Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.-Ayn Rand
In conclusion,your happiness is in your hands.
