What is happiness? We all want to be happy, but do we know what happiness really is? Man is in an eternal search for happiness. Everything he does, he does to be happy: he creates a career, earns money, surrounds himself with material goods, seeks the love of his life ...The question is, what does it really mean to be happy? People have been thinking about that since time immemorial. Being happy means being satisfied with life and feeling fulfilled, that could be a simplified definition.
Happiness is different for everyone. For example, in my opinion, happiness is to have good friends around me, family support, fine and healthy child. But, for my friend happiness is when he can travel around the world, to have the last model of a smartphone. So first we need to understand what makes us really happy to know what to look for. We often follow other people's paths to happiness, which in the end leads us to disappointment. Attitudes imposed by the family, the environment, society, the media can blur our horizons so that we do not recognize what it is that we really want. Man is a social being and everything that happens around him strongly affects his life. No matter how good we are, we cannot be completely happy if the people around us suffer.
Today, there are various books and teachings that come from the West, which say that a person is born to be constantly happy, not to suffer, to always be cheerful and in a good mood. Sometimes it seems to me that happiness is imposed on us as an imperative-command. What would happen if we really managed to achieve a state of constant happiness. We would probably get used to it in time, as we are used to all the beauty that surrounds us, and soon we would not even be aware that we are happy. That is probably why everything is made of opposites: life and death, day and night, health and disease, joy and sorrow, happiness and unhappiness ... It is normal to be in a bad mood and sad sometimes. It is completely natural for us to feel anxiety and fear in some difficult situations. When we are hurt, crying gives us relief. As the sun shines the strongest after the rain, so our joy is greater after the sorrow. And so don't be afraid of bad emotions and don't even suppress them. Allow yourself occasional moments of weakness, but try to find as much as possible everything you enjoy, what you laugh at from the heart, what makes you alive. Just as day and night are constantly changing, so are joys and sorrows, happiness and unhappiness in our lives. Only if we learn to know what true happiness is for us and if we try to have as many such moments in our lives as possible, we will overcome all the storms that occasionally hover over our lives without much difficulty.
Happiness is in little things. Before you start to search for happiness, look better, check it - maybe you are already happy!
