About happiness, again


flowersHow much does our happiness depend on others? How much is not happiness unless it is recognized and mirrored back by another person? And what happens when we hang our happiness on another person’s regard and acceptance of us?

Yet another day of doubting whether it is worth seeking happiness again. Or is lasting happiness really happiness at all, but rather a contentment, peace, and quiet joy?

  1. Happiness is alway wort seeking. A nice place to be at. Different happiness, solitude or twosome, each with its own pros and consπŸ˜€πŸ”†. Most importantly; enjoy where you are right now. Before you know it, its gone, replaced with…..
    you better enjoy itπŸ’–

    • Thank you sweetie. πŸ™‚ Not sure whether happiness is by definition lasting. Seems like there is always a temporal component and it is much dependent on external factors. I may have concluded it is not worth seeking, or rather: seeking for happiness is seeking for the wrong thing altogether. πŸ™‚

  2. Happiness might be a state of mind after all…Its just according to the way u look at things..or😜
