Most people have this twisted idea that they don’t deserve or are not worthy of happiness. They may have guilt about their past, and feel they should be punished severely.
If you don’t feel you are worthy of happiness, then it is time for a change of perspective. Give yourself an opportunity to find your happy place.
I know it is really hard to keep a happy countenance in times of trials, but we have to try our best to stay happy.
What are you holding onto that is making you unhappy?
Sometimes, we consciously choose to be unhappy. This might be as a result of our past. I think you need to take a hard look at your life, in order to find out why you are unable to put a smile on that face. A real smile of course, not a mask.
Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you. But rather, it is determined by what’s happening inside you.
Most times, we depend on “things” to gain happiness. We look at our condition, and then allow it to determine our happiness. That isn’t how life is supposed to be lived.
When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the “right things” a chance to catch you.
So many uncertainties consume our daily thoughts. The longer you keep living with those fears, the longer you are going to stay miserable.
We all deserve to be happy, because we are human. We are going to make many mistakes along the way. The fact that we have the courage to push through, shows we deserve to be happy.
Happiness is something we are born with. It is an innate emotion. You don’t have to earn it.
Besides, being sad almost on a daily basis, is like living a slow, painful death.
The fact that we experience happiness, make us feel that there’s still hope for everything.
We deserve to be happy amidst the unfortunate events that we have been through.
Yes, there is nothing wrong in expressing different emotions, but do not get tied down to the negative ones. Besides, who would benefit if you were to remain unhappy?
We can lose an eye, a leg, etc. But that doesn’t mean we have lost the right to be happy, because true happiness cost nothing.
