We are happy when we feel content and fulfilled.
Genes play a role but we also got to make an effort to be happy.
Being unhappy is much easier than being happy. Don’t take care of yourself, accept what you are given, don’t change what you can and you’ll be unhappy. Low or no effort but terrible result.
At the core of unhappiness is the idea of what “should” be.
Happiness comes from not resisting the current state and then making an effort to change it. That effort may be keeping mind and body in equilibrium, taking responsibility and doing what needs to be done to get what you need.
Which path will you take?
The path of no effort or the one that takes effort.
