Create Happiness

Fear. Pride. Boredom. Laziness. Overthinking. Lamenting. Feeling sorry, guilty, as if you’re not good enough.

Hurting others with the truth or comforting them with a lie.

Listening to reply or to understand.

Life becomes increasingly complicated. But it’s not. It’s damn simple. It’s hard, but simple.

I believe there’s something that keeps everything in place so to speak. The Universe — it’s a work of art.

In the world of men, what keeps everything in place is love.

Because love is the only force on Earth that takes as many forms as fear does. Overthinking is a special form of fear. So is anxiety. Or shyness.

Hope is a special form of love. You can feel it, don’t you? Even when nothing makes sense, even when you’re brain tells you to give up, there’s something inside you fighting to keep on going. Fighting because one day it will all make sense.

One day you will understand.

In life, we are taught one lesson. How to love.

Ourselves. One another. The world. What we do. What we have. What happened.

Compassion is a different form of love. So is patience. Or courage.

This world will break you until you understand this one lesson.

If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either. If you don’t see magic and beauty in yourself, you won’t see it anywhere else.

You see what you are.

You are what you love.

You are what you choose to be.

And in life is not so important what you are, what your qualities are, but what you see. What you’re looking at changes according to how you feel inside.

The world is but a mirror, showing us our soul.

It’s also not important what you do, but why you do it.

Being kind to others because you want to be perceived as kind or because it’s expected of you will ultimately make you feel like a fraud. You’ll always be afraid that people will expose you. But being kind because that’s the right thing to do, even if no one’s ever going to repay you or even show you gratitude…maybe no one will ever even know…

Treat others not according to who they are or how they treat you. Treat others as a reflection of your character.

Be who you want to be, not what others want you to be.

Know that happiness is not a destination, but a way of travel.

And understand deeply that love is capable of conquering all. Sooner or later.

    Very well written and I strongly agree. I would ask you one question: what is the source of love?

    Beautiful Christian. Both poignant and powerful.

    I agree 100%.
    In simpler terms; how you feel will make you feel better. ( a little bit at a time is best)

    While feeling good you provide the most benefit to others.

    Feeling bad has no benefit.
