Happiness is really an inside job, but I feel when people hear that they misinterpret it in other ways. They figure if they improve everything that surrounds them then they will feel better. I’ve seen people get a better job, earn more money, go back to school, find the love of the life/left a toxic relationship, and have improve their relationship with family and friends, but they still have moments of not being happy. They question to themselves, “Why is that? I have fixed/fixing my problems” And this where people get it all wrong. They think career, how much income, and relationships are things to make them happy. In contrary, it’s making sure your mental, spiritual, and emotional state is at peace. You can improve stressful situations to bring some relief and purpose to your life, but how can you fully appreciate those things if you are not mentally stable? First, dig truly deep within. Try to find your inner peace and freedom from your inner demons. Then, and only then, everything else will come full circle. Not saying all the accomplishments are not worth it or something not to be proud of. An achievement is an achievement. That is something to be happy about. All I’m saying, don’t depend on them solely because it’s not where your happiness completely lies. Happiness is within you.
