Happiness…. it is something the entire world craves for. Some believe they have it, some believe they don’t. It is the hope for happiness on which the world exists. Happiness means different things to different people. Some wish for material belongings while others wish for love.
The interpretation of happiness is varied. It is said that happiness is within our own self and we do not need to look for it outside…Is it really true?? A person can be happy even if he is alone or does not possess any material belongings. Inner happiness is true happiness
A man is a social animal and we are not alone in this world. We need to co-exist with others. We live in a society and belong to a family. We do need friends and well wishers around us. So, does the state of being happy even if one is alone stand true?
Well there is a difference…we need people around us to exist but we need to be happy from inside. Internal happiness is the key. If we are happy in spite of life and its hurdles then that is true happiness. If our happiness does not depend on others and we are not affected by their behaviour, it then that we are truly happy.
But the fact is that we are dependent on others right from the time we are born. We are made such. We are biologically programmed to depend on others for our happiness. It is human nature. True happiness comes from being content in life. It involves a lot of hard work.
There are people around us all the time. We cannot survive without others. We are in relationships all the time. But we should not depend on them for our own happiness. We should create our own happiness. Yes, it is easier said than done.
We are so used to depending on others that we forget about our own self. We work towards making others happy. That too is important, no doubt but somewhere down the line we forget about our own priorities. That’s where we go wrong.
First and foremost loving ourselves is important. If we love ourselves we love others better. If we love others better then we get back all the love. Happiness starts within us. Happy people make a happy world. So, all you people out there, if you truly want to be happy, start by loving yourself and giving priority to your health, hunger, sleep and rest. Stay fit to stay happy.
