Avarice, envy, pride, hostility…
may be considered terrible sins;
but there is no greater sin than being unhappy.
Life is too short to spend it unhappy, suffering and angry.
It depends on you what you do with the time you have been given.
Reflect deeply on whether you want the years you spend in this world to be a fantastic story of love, friendship and achievement or a sea of tears and constant suffering.
You cannot always be happy, but almost
Don’t be cynical, but don’t be innocent either.
Perhaps you cannot be happy at all times of the day, because there is always something happening that disturbs our peace of mind, our life in general.
This is obvious. However, we would like to propose that you reflect on this.
In this case, the exercise consists of a look back. Think of all the years of your life, from the time you can remember, up to this very moment. What do you see?
There are many things you can appreciate when you take a well-considered stocktaking of your life.
However, if the end result is that, leaving aside the hard and bad times, the misfortunes and the pain, the complications and the challenges, you have been happy, you are not committing the sin of not making the most of your time.
If, however, when you take stock of your existence, you realise that misfortunes weigh on you like lead around the neck, if you are unable to lift your head, if you find it difficult to look to the future with hope, and if your life is a sea of tears from which you do not know how to get out, you are committing a grave sin, because you are not happy.
“Happiness is not doing what you love, but loving what you do.”
Jean Paul Sartre
Is happiness overrated?
Some people say that happiness is overrated.
Perhaps they are right. Others say it is impossible to achieve, and that is likely.
There are also those who believe that it is an invented concept, to try to justify our passage through the world. We will not be the ones to deny it.
Regardless of any study or belief, there is one thing we can learn in life.
And that is that when we are in love, with a job we like, and surrounded by the people we love, we are happy.
Doesn’t it make you feel great to be where you want to be, to be loved, valued and unique? Is this not happiness?
Maybe you don’t have the answer.
Many people may think that they are not happy, but if you feel good about yourself, if you are happy with what you do and have, you are probably happy.
How to achieve happiness?
There is only one way to be happy: to be yourself.
However, to make your personality explode, you cannot stop on the surface.
The capricious, the envious, the slanderer justify themselves by saying that they are like that, that no one can change them, but they are off the mark.
“One day in any place, in any place you will meet yourself, and that, only that, can be the happiest or the bitterest of your hours.”
A person can only be himself when he knows himself intimately.
Deep in the heart of each of us is our unique and immutable truth, our true personality.
The one that jealously guards the dreams and desires of our soul.
In the depths of our being is rooted the true pursuit of happiness.
Because your heart doesn’t lie to you, it will reveal to you who you want to be with and who you don’t want to be with, the job you want to do, the right partner for you and those who only accompany you for personal gain.
Don’t wait any longer, because every day that passes is precious time that you lose. Do not make the mistake of being unhappy, nor allow sadness to invade your soul and your being.
You deserve the best, and you are the only masters of your present and your future.
Cling to it with strength and begin to be who you really are.
