Just My Ideas...

Until this understanding is reached, I don't believe a person can be happy.

The thing is, negativity breeds negativity. So many people tout unhappiness, when, all they have to do is stop thinking that something profound needs to happen TO them in order to obtain it.

It is such a simple concept, once you stop looking for it, you've reached the destination. It's perfectly normal for life experiences to get you down sometimes. Understanding that these events are phases, sure to pass, and that each time something goes wrong it is an opportunity to learn from it is to reach a state of happiness.

You don't have to know what makes you happy. Happiness is not a destination which requires some great journey. For if this is what you think, it will forever be elusive to you. The pursuit of happiness, in itself will create the opposite. Stop looking for it, and just... BE.

Everybody has their own demons, their own struggles, their own past to contend with. EVERYbody. We are all shaped by them, and we are all shaped differently. Narcissistic self loathing may be comfortable, but is only a vicious cycle. Live a life of love. A love that is extended to every person and situation you are faced with.

Even in my darkest days I call myself a happy person, because I choose to be.
