I know it is easier said than done, but holy moly – being happy is easy. I’m not exaggerating on this at all. It’s only hard because you want to reach a certain expectation that honestly does not apply to your standards, rather only satisfying others. Just think about that for a second… That’s kind of fucked, right?
Remember this: you have your free-will. Everyone has this and you know it. But you also don’t exactly know it because often people don’t use it. One cannot possibly understand something great and not know how to apply it. So, you must realize that you possess something that NO ONE will ever take away from you. That is your free-will.
You might say, “no no Isabelle, it doesn’t work like that” or “because of all this, I can’t do that”. STOP! You can’t blame anything or anybody else for your own downfall or unhappiness. I told you – your life is in your own hands and only yours. You are in control of doing whatever, which means that you have the ability to be happy. It’s already in there because of this so called free-will that you have.
Why do you choose to be so unhappy all the time? Stop that. You can stop that right NOW. Just by simply realizing your own power to snap out of it right away will guarantee your future success.
Now, the “complex” part about this is only the fact that this requires YOUR will to be happy. That is the challenging part. You say that you want to be happy, yet you choose to keep doing the same routine over and over. Then you ask why the heck are you not feeling happy when I decided to be happy two days ago? Well, look at you! You’re not stepping out of that negative phase that’s gearing you away from happiness within you. How can you not see it when it’s right there!
Thinking that you can’t be happy and that being happy is hard since life is HARD is really all gibberish. You know why life is hard? It’s because people make it hard. Stop that bullshit now. Why would you want to choose to be miserable when you can easily be happy? You have to let go of that ego.
