Self-Help is Making Us Less Happy

The process of making ourselves better than who we were yesterday can be an exhaustive thing to do. In a world where we're constantly inundated with the cheer for self-improvement, we then become obsessed with the idea of improve, improve, improve!

When we become too addicted to looking inward and achieving our own ideals. our need to overperform has become pathological.Thus a solidified conclusion is never entirely possible because we insert ourselves in every situation that cannot be fixed by ourselves alone.

Individual concept of wabi sabi:
  • Wabi is about recognizing beauty in humble simplicity. ~detach from the vanity of materialism so we can experience spiritual richness instead~
  • Sabi is concerned with the passage of time, the way all things grow, age, and decay, and how it manifests itself beautifully in objects.

Together, these two create the philosopical approach-

Accept what is, stay in the present moment, and appreciate the simple, transient stages of life.
