I can’t decide if I find it more funny than sad or vise versa – this whole, “Do what makes you happy” trend.
Part of me wants to believe that people don’t actually buy it. But I’m probably wrong. It’s a way, I guess, for people to justify their selfish ways.
Life is tough. Suffering, sadness, disappointment are not anomalies in life, happiness is. Get used to it and be thankful in your daily and constant suffering because it makes you tough enough to make it through.
So, even though we like to wish everyone a (air quotes) Happy New Year (air quotes) you are going to have a tough, rough and disappointing new year, but try to be happy anyway.
It’s not about DOING what makes you happy. You can’t avoid pain. It’s about BEING happy even when things go wrong.
Trust me, they will.
