Happiness is a special feeling that we chase. It’s because happiness brings pleasure to life. The term happiness is the context of mental or emotional states. The definition of happiness is a positive and pleasant emotion ranging from contentment to intense joy. Why do we chase this feeling? How do we find it? We find it by never giving up on it. I’ve met people who give up on finding happiness. If you genuinely believe that you can find it, eventually you will. We have to remember that happiness is not a permanent feeling. There are moments in life that will force you to question whether happiness exists. This is normal. We go through these situations temporarily until happiness returns to us again.
If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t find happiness, here are some ways you can find it again.
We like the idea of staying authentic. We want to be ourselves. Why should we consider changing? The real reason is that when you reinvite yourself, you learn more about who you are as a person. It’s not to say that you’re forcing yourself to change. I wouldn’t think of it that way. Essentially, to reinvent yourself is to better yourself. You can change your hairstyle or find new clothes to wear. I have even heard of people changing their career paths. These are small examples of how you can change yourself for the better.
It’s one of the hardest challenges to do. We are too hard on ourselves. I know that, when I am going through a tough time, I tend to beat myself up more than I actually stay positive. It’s a downhill spiral that happens at our worst. I want to remind you that you are not perfect. There is no one in this world that is perfect. It’s why, when you beat yourself up, it serves no purpose. It hurts you more than what you deserve. It’s normal to make mistakes. When you make a mistake, tell yourself it’s okay and learn from it. It’s all about learning.
Learn Something New
This is valuable. Your mind is a tool that keeps you happy. There are studies out there that show that learning a new skill is a good way to increase the dopamine in your brain. It brings value and substance to your life. I’ve learned that, once we stay stuck in our lives, we tend to live in that moment. When we try to do new things, we are motivating ourselves to continue our pursuit of happiness.
Never Give Up
This is important too. You don’t want to give up. If you give up, you won’t find your happiness. There are days where it may seem impossible. You may think that you don’t deserve it. However, I am here to tell you that you do. If you believe you should be happy, then that happiness will follow.
