I cannot even start counting how many bloggers and editors out there like to preach us on how to be happy. It seems that everyone and their grandmother have their own preach-worthy (NOT) own formula.
Finding happiness, is not something someone behind their screen can teach you. Period. This is something you gotta do on your own. Some enlightened individuals can and might give you a few clues, but no one can really give you a way. Some can show you where to look, but no one can or is allowed to tell you what to see.
Being happy is a state of being who you are, and being comfortable in your own skin. And it goes back to every person to find out who they are, and how can they optimize their happiness in accord of they own life keys.
Some people find happiness in dressing up and looking good. No one is allowed to tell them they are superficial.
Some people find happiness in luxuries. No one is allowed to tell them they are materialistic.
Some people find happiness in fast cars. No one is allowed to tell them they are reckless.
Some people find happiness in small simple things. No one is allowed to tell them they are narrow minded or they have a limited view of the world.
Some people find happiness in the weirdest things and hobbies. No one is allowed to pass a judgment.
Overall, no one, from behind their screen is allowed to judge. Their opinion, at best, is worth exactly as much as the nanosecond needed to close that tab.
Never settle for anyone’s definition of happiness. They know shit.
