I want to change the way people think about “happiness.” Many believe that if you are happy, you shouldn’t be experiencing any other emotions. You should only be happy all the time. AND that is so not the case.
In fact, happy people have a great way of experiencing an array emotions and then letting them go. The key words here being “experience” and then “let go!”
There are many reasons for this.
The Secret to Happy People
One reason is that happy people are authentic, they aren’t pretending to be somebody that they are not. They aren’t living life by somebody’s else’s rules. These people genuinely do what’s in their heart.
Another reason is that they know what true happiness is and they aren’t afraid to fight for it. Happy people aren’t willing to compromise who they are to conform to society’s norms. These people would rather walk alone, rather then fit in with the crowd. They don’t need anybody’s approval because they love themselves.
If you ask them how their day is, they won’t mumble, “Oh, I’m fine.” They will be more honest about their experience.What helps these happy people is their resilience. Their minds are tough and they can process emotions, even the scary ones, with ease and an optimist perspective.
These people live in the moment. In order to keep moving forward, they have to let go of the baggage from the past. Now this isn’t easy, you have to train your mind to be resilent.
If you don’t go through the process of taking in emotions, experiencing them, and letting them go, then there will be an imbalance. You will just feel off. Our bodies are smart, we have emotions for a reason. We can’t pretend that they don’t exist because they might burden us.
Of course, this is no easy task and it can take a lifetime to figure out. But who said life was easy anyways?
