What Is Happiness?

Well, it's been a long time, far too long since I felt true, genuine happiness. What it is like to feel happy? I have no recollection. Yes, my troubles are always there, looming permanently.Sometimes, I take the bull by the horns and challenge it and that's the time when I feel very stressed out, sad, yucky and very very exhausted. Then, there are times when I just sweep them under the carpet because I am too tired to move on. I know when I need some rest away from all this junk in my life. I need some " happiness". And so, I will go watch a movie, eat some good food but it never worked. Yeah, it did give me pleasure. It did give me instant bliss. But no, it didn't give me happiness because I will always be certain that my torubles will never recede. After one is gone, here comes another and the cycle goes on and on. Do I live just so I can solve the troubles that I create myself? When can I truly live? When can I feel extreme happiness that stays there for years, or perhaps milleniums to come?

You will truly live when you decide you don't want to give in to the drama anymore. You have to look at the root of the problem. Why are you unhappy? You are unhappy because you tell yourself you wan't all kinds of things. And then you tell yourself you can't have any of it because of this or that. That is the cycle you have to stop. Either stop the wanting or stop the negative thoughts about it. If you constantly need something to be happy then you are depending on other people for your happiness.

Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it!
