Everyone is talking about happiness, seeking it and sharing their tips and tricks to get there. It’s like happiness is a pushover and suddenly everyone can easily attain it. But it still baffles me how everywhere I look, there are sad people. Everyone is disappointed, angry, dissatisfied with their lives. Where does all that gloom come from?
Would anyone ever get there?
Do you know what it takes for life to be satisfying for you?
Can someone’s life be satisfying to begin with?
You think you’re alone in this, but when you delve into the lives of others you find out that everyone is earning more money, everyone is more secure, everyone is closer to the people they love, everyone is accomplishing something in life, everyone is looking forward to things. But in the end there is always something that is missing in their life. And the only common factor is that they all still sad and unsatisfied just like yourself.
Is happiness a temporary state of mind?
Would questing happiness come between pulling it off?
You acknowledge your life as is and decide to accept the things you can’t change anyway and you move on. But deep down you keep hoping life is gonna magically unwrap itself one day, deep down you hope something good is going to happen. Cause you know there is more to life than just this, you know there is some kind of a reward for all the patience and the putting up to this crap. And that’s what keep you going through the day.
What if there isn’t?
What if this is as good as it gets?
Would happiness be acquired with acceptance or rather when you have something to look forward to?
What exactly comes first; acceptance, or faith?
Would acceptance defy the ‘believing in better life’ concept?
Is anyone anywhere happy? No, not unless they are living in a dream or in an artifice that they or someone else has made.
