Happiness? 

Maybe I just don’t know how to be happy. Could it be possible that I just only exist in a state of NOT being happy. Not necessarily that this means “sad”… But just not happy.

What IS happiness anyway? Is anyone ever really happy? 

To have a day not full of anxiety about something/ someone is impossible for me, that I know. 

Can you learn to be happy? 

I know self help/ motivational excerpts always say positive thoughts make “life” positive. I’ve never bought into that… But I do try it sometimes… But maybe since I don’t fully believe it, it has never worked for me. 

So far nothing has changed. Maybe I want the change too fast? Or I’m looking out for change too much? Or maybe there won’t be a change… 

I don’t know many happy people. I probably don’t know any off hand just by thinking … 

Why, with all the advancements in the world, is happiness even harder to achieve now than before?

  1. Is happiness harder to achieve now? (Aristotle said “all those who have attained excellence in philosophy, in poetry, in art, and in politics had a melancholic habitus..”) I do think our concept of happiness is a bit warped. We treat it as a sustainable state. I think it’s enough to appreciate small moments and be satisfied with that degree of happiness. Others seem to want it 100% of the time and mourn when they fail to hit that mark.
