My Study Project on Happiness!
This is not so much a story as an epiphany that I am currently having, and have been having, over the last few months - about happiness.
We all seek happiness in a lot of areas in our lives: money, love and various other things (for me it is music). What people get wrong is these things have no value of their own in making us happy. What makes us happy is in our own value and how we see ourselves.
People feel the need to be in relationships because the other person validates them and gives them worth. People want to earn lots of money because it gives them a sense of what they are worth... you can see where I am going with this cant you?
Ultimately happiness comes from a sense of how we see ourselves, and in that one thing is everything you need to know about the human condition.
And this one thing is: All anyone ever wants is to know that they matter.
