Being happy does not mean looking at something that is not working and then putting on a wan smile. It is not about humbly accepting crap like a martyr or putting a bandaid over whatever has you upset, fearful, angry, sad, etc. It’s not about getting happy and holding onto it for dear life. And it certainly is not about waiting for some conditions to be true or making them true so that you can finally be happy.
It is about finding your way to feeling joy now. And it’s about coming back to feeling joy as quickly as possible when you fall off.
In your corner,
PS: It’s about actually being happy. And we all have what it takes to be that happy.
