It was like this: to be happy, to feel good, i always had to do, be or have something or someone.

But the truth is... why should i need anything to help me be joyful and happy if that´s my nature.

That´s me, i´m joyful, i´m happy. That´s who and what i am.

So the problem is that i needed something outside of me, to let me be myself.

But why? That´s the dumbest thing to do.

I have been using the wrong formula.

I don´t really need anything to happen, it already happened - my existence.

Joy and happiness are my nature.

I just need to remember who i am.

Thanks for reading.

So if you are locked in a dark cell with no physical comforts, human interaction or food, you would still be happy?

Its not rational to be happy, just be it, no use in analyzing its logic, there is no logic...

We are the ones who determine our destiny!

It could always be worse!

Reminds me of a video i saw today of a transgender 'coming out' to their class for an assignment. Not sure why it reminds me of this, maybe cuz I think they found their own happiness.

Personally i have no need nor desire to be happy,
i am satisfied as it is.
Merely to be contented is enough.

Happiness tends to be a fleeting thing. Will you still be happy tomorrow? I doubt it but that's okay, at least you know what happiness is. That's something on its own.

Personally, I believe that we are unhappy for a reason, there are things in life that are important to us, however, because we live in a world of delusion, we are often to busy to realise what those things are. Often, spiritually, we are missing pieces of our selves, at least from the way that I view it. If you feel like you have lost something, or that you are forgetting something, the chances are, is that, you have. How do you deal with this "loss" when you cannot pinpoint what it is? The answer is to follow your intuition, and leave logic and purpose behind for the time being. You might think that you are making a decision, however, you are being drawn to certain events in your future. When you feel a sense of relief, when those thoughts that once clouded your judgement and got you down are no longer having any effect on your wellbeing, you know that you have picked up those pieces that fell.
