Lately, I've notice different patterns of happiness in people by the way they react and how they feel. Usually, when someone receives a desirable item, we become so blessed by this offer that it's overwhelming. Let's say for money, the more we have, the better our life will be. But this isn't exactly true. People say that money can solve problems, but if you take that as an advantage, we would think, "Oh this isn't enough, I need more!" We take happiness in the wrong direction because the only way to feel good is to desire things we can't have.
One thing that most people have not tried is focusing on the things we have in our hands. There are so many attributes that we're gifted, yet we see it in a negative way. Some may say,
"I don't look pretty"
"I wish I was her"
"I'm really stupid"
"I can't do this"
"I want to be popular"
Everyone is a victim for shaming themselves. We're so focus on criticizing ourselves that we never realize are good qualities. Think about something brilliant you have, it could be your personality, talents, success, or anything. Whenever you find yourself in criticism, remember a good deed or quality you did.
Even though appreciating yourself shows happiness, you gotta remember the people around you. Either bad or good, they're all human, we seek happiness. Instead of shaming them for things that didn't matter, you could shower them with love and compassion. When you give more, you receive more. So compliment, lend a hand, or even teach them. You'll feel so much better and happier as you're becoming a better person. Just remember that we all can't stay alive forever. Who knows when we will disappear. I always think about the world itself in relation to my complaints such as,
"I hate going to school"
"Many folks can't have an education"
"I want to be with him again"
"Not everyone is loved or accepted"
"I'm sick of my parents"
"Some don't have guardians to guide them"
Happiness is given through effort and compassion not short-cuts or complaints. There will be time when we all fall in a slump, but there's a way to get back up. Where do you find happiness? Easy, loving yourself and teaching others.
See ya next time! Ciao
