The most “sought after” emotion in life is happiness, and yet it is the most difficult for scientists to explain. Happiness is often interpreted to be positive, but there are numerous downsides to this cheerful emotion. Due to the expectations that often accompany it, one’s happiness tends to cause feelings of betrayal and depression. Researchers conclude that those who are constantly happy, or strive to be, are the same people that often dread attending family events. For instance, “Don’t Worry, Be Gloomy” by Susan David states “Striving for happiness establishes an expectation and confirms the saying that expectations are resentments waiting to happen.
“Money can’t buy happiness.” You 've probably heard this saying before but paid no attention to it. But these four words can be very powerful. Status also does not make a person happy. The exact definition of happiness is, “a state of well-being and contentment.” Just because someone may have lots of money or be a famous celebrity, they may not be content with what they have and desire even more in life. Therefore happiness is a feeling that you cannot earn by using status or money alone.
It is human nature to strive for happiness and do things that you enjoy doing. John Mill says, “those only are happy (I thought) who have their minds fixed on some object other than their own happiness” which I don’t agree with, I know personally in my own life there are lots of things that make me happy that don’t even involve other people or their happiness. I feel that most people agree that they want to be happy and strive to find that happiness, whether it is the perfect partner or a good job, everyday. In A Crisis in my Mental History, John Stuart Mill says,” The only chance is to treat, not happiness, but some end external to it, as the purpose of
The lack of money is an issue many people face everyday and creates the perception that without it we wouldn’t have our lives the way we would like them to be. Money is a source of reliability, it connects us to others and ourselves. A lack of money implies our failure in ourselves, therefore we search for it as a sufficient answer implying our triumph. Consequently, our dependence on money is the frequent way of reassuring everyone and ourselves that we are in perfect state both in our physical life and mental
This approach can be hard for a lot of people to accept and in some relationships, it could be a deal-breaker. But if you want to play the long game, if you’re serious about success, build a tolerance for disapproval and discontentment from others… All successful people do this and so should you. Discomfort #2 Doubt For most people, deep self-doubt is an unbearable feeling. It leads to anxiety and fear that kickstarts a spiral of negative thoughts about failure and public humiliation. What if I don’t get what I want?
I 'll be happy when I.. This simple sentence starter “ I’ll be happy when…” has a huge impact on our lives. Too often we get caught up on waiting on things to happen in order to happy instead of being content with how our lives are now because the reality is that this is a never ending cycle of dissatisfaction, a trap, and unless we become conscious of how we are putting off our happiness to wait for things outside of our own self we will never be happy. Often times people base their happiness a few main places, their career/finances, their relationships, objects, and their physical appearance. Now there’s no arguing that in our society people base other’s happiness on the career they have and the amount of money they make, we idolize people like the Kardashians and automatically assume since they are rich the must be happy.
The idea that happiness is an achievable state but depends on something we do not have, we find can be disastrous and so can be the delusion that happiness is maintainable. If someone is not happy or at least satisfied with what they already have, they can never be satisfied with something that will happen in the future. Everything is temporary. Everything that we go through in life has come to pass, it did not come to
These people have started to realize the dissimilarity between pleasure and happiness. They often claim that happiness is the end of life and conclude that they have to search for happiness in order to find the meaning of life. Yet, there are also people who do not agree with this statement and regard that they have
A huge problem that this generation has (and something I will repeat and repeat in this essay ) been that millennial tries to do everything because they like and what they use to dream . Millennial passion is something that leads them in the wrong place because they are engaging with being happy , they can't deal with the felling of boredom and routine , . So they do not have any sense of patience . Also the extra freedom they have or the freedom that the previous generation had are a problem because the students do not see each one in the future as people that tend to start from the smallest employee and then after some time they get promoted and being in a top job . One more time they want to be in their comfort zone always
