Everywhere you go, unhappiness meets you.
Stand at a busy street during working hours, sit on a subway train midday, or even go to a music club late at night and you will see a lot of unhappy people.
A great majority of people are unhappy, but feel they ought to be.
It appears to me that people’s unhappiness is largely due to the mistaken beliefs people have about what actually makes people happy.
However, these are matters which lie within the power of the individual to change.
For those who seek to understand happiness, my advice is to read books on happiness.
Books such as…
“The Happiness Hypothesis,” by Jonathan Haidt.
“Civilizations and Its Discontents,” by Sigmund Freud.
And “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,” by Robin S. Sharma
As the saying goes,
“Don’t seek happiness. Seek the knowledge of what makes people happy.”
