Chasing Happiness

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.
