Happiness is the goal for everyone.
But today my boyfriend made me realise that if you focus too much on finding happiness you may never find it. Why? Because nothing will ever be good enough. You may find yourself constantly looking for it. You’ll constantly strive for more and more. Your idea of happiness may become filtered and you lose touch of what it truly entails. Therefore when you work towards what you think will bring you happiness it will feel anti-climatic.
Happiness isn’t a fairy tale. It isn’t a world without problems and setbacks. It is an inner peace with the self, the world and everything it has to offer. Happiness is to be content.
So in order to achieve happiness one must know what already makes them happy and work towards those things. If you’re unsure that is probably because you’re trapped in a situation that makes you unhappy and all you need to do is escape; leave it behind, in the past.
Find love in yourself.
Find love in the things around you.
Find peace in the negatives.
Find what it feels like to be content.
Then happiness is yours.
