Quest for happiness


What are we looking for in our lives? In order to attain happiness we play different characters throughout our lives, and forget that we ourselves are persons at first place and that specific character at the second.

The roles change, with that we change our desires and expectations; they give us images (3)pleasure/pain, teach us a lesson sometimes and leaves us behind or at a distance. It’s difficult to carry on the roles in the same way because they grow and mature and need appropriate treatment.

Many of us while nurturing the relationships keep an eye on the growth of the person inside, but if anyone who’s lost in illusion of relationships faces depression earlier or later.  Treat yourself as a person first because that person is your life long partner.

In the quest of life we often ignore the fact that we are nearing towards ultimate reality.Image

 A pinch of Pollyannaism-

Make connections, enjoy them but never get attached…

  1. I agree, Shelly. We must find happiness within ourselves and then look for it in others!

  2. Agree with the heart warming post. Shelly. In a bid to please everyone, we are losing ourselves but we shouldn’t sacrifice our growth and happiness.

    Wonderful take on the quest! We should first find happiness within and then look for it elsewhere!

  5. People cannot make us happy. They can make us happier or take away some happiness. But ultimately we have to be happy within ourselves.
