True Happiness is hard to find

Updated on November 10, 2016

Happiness does not depend on wealth

True happiness is hard to obtain. Some people confuse happiness with wealth, or fame, or even relationships. However, happiness does not depend on someone’s wealth, if it did, the world would not be full of wealthy people who are unhappy.

However, reality says no, wealth will not make someone happy because money cannot buy a friend, or love, or joy, nor does happiness depend on someone’s fame. If it did, the world would not be full of famous people who are unhappy. Again, reality says no, Someone’s popularity will not make him or her happy.

What makes me happy?

Even families cannot make someone happy, so, what makes me happy? My happiness comes from within, from the heart. Do I like everything I encounter in life” of course not! “But,” I would rather face the things I do not like being happy, rather than being unhappy.

Happiness is a choice

Happiness is a choice, “You,” can choose to be happy, or, “you,” can choose to be unhappy. The Bible says as a man thinks in his heart, so is he (Pro.23:7). The Bible also says we are to make melody in our hearts (Eph.5:19). Therefore, every morning when I wake up, I have to make a decision, a decision to be happy, or a decision to be unhappy. The Bible said to take every thought into captivity (2-Cor.10:5).

Capture your thoughts

Therefore, everyone has the option of capturing his or her thoughts and changing them, and if your thoughts are unhappy ones, then do what I do every day, I decide to be happy because happiness starts in the mind.
