Everyone wants to be happy. Almost everyone is going about it wrong. - Deepstash
Chasing Happiness

Many people believe that bliss is a feeling that should have permanency and refusing to believe otherwise makes you a downer. However, bliss is a temporary state of being. It is attainable but it brings forth emotional distress when entangled with unrealistic expectations.

The volatility of emotions runs high when we are not able to accept that there are some things we are not in control of. It is important to remember that the more you seek happiness, the more you are doomed to fail.

  • "I'll be happy when..."
  • Problems come and go quickly
  • Material things bring happiness
  • Perfection is the key to happiness
  • Stability equates to happiness
  • "My parents had it harder than I did..."

All of these are myths that give off the precedent that this is what happiness should be but it is mostly consumed by denial, detractory, and envy. Being able to accept the good with the bad will aid us into finding ourselves and explore what happiness truly means for us.
