Is Happiness Temporary?
It seems we are all striving for happiness but can we be permanently happy or is happiness just temporary. I use to believe that constant, endless happiness was attainable. I think I was conditioned to think that way, so for years I consistently yearned to be happy all the time. Not being able to achieve this brought some form of shame-is something wrong with me.
Now, I have finally come to realize that happiness is a temporary state. It’s quite unrealistic to believe that we can live in constant, endless happiness.
I’ve had my share of happy moments and also my share of bad moments. A bad moment is a bad moment. A happy moment is a happy moment. Moments are fleeting.
I think it would be more beneficial to appreciate each moment of our life and to recognize our wide spectrum of feelings than to live striving for steady, relentless happiness. I think this will bring more peace to our lives. However,that is just my opinion.
