Happiness: We all seek it. But it becomes elusive when we perceive happiness as a thing to be possessed rather than a state of being. When we’re operating with the former mindset, we turn to external sources to bring us happiness, like the accumulation of material possessions or exclusively pleasurable relationships. But all these things are fickle. You can be on top of the world one day and on the bottom another. The only real constant in life is change. That’s why only true and lasting happiness comes from within and through cultivating a deep relationship with your own complexity.
So much wisdom here. Thank you.
