It is no secret that we all share one common desire in life and that is to be happy. But how we come to find that happiness divides us into two categories. These categories aren’t necessarily based on what desires we’ve associated with happiness but our interpretation of the experience of life altogether. We have conditioned ourselves to live in one of two ways, but only one of these ways is actually beneficial in helping us reach happiness.
We may not even realize we’ve placed ourselves in one of these two categories. Find out based on the characteristics which category you belong in currently, and whether it truly does bring you happiness.
We All Just Want To Be Happy
All of humanity shares one common goal and that is to be happy. Some think that happiness if found in power, because they’ve convinced themselves that if they’re at the top, they’re no longer vulnerable to having happiness taken away. Others find happiness in material things, because they can always be made available. The average person finds little doses of happiness in their career, their relationships, and in their travels.
But what does it actually mean to be happy? Author Roy T. Bennett wrote in his book that “If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.” This would indicate that maybe happiness is an ongoing process, not a destination that can be reached and kept safe in a lockbox.
