Unhappy

We seem to have a consistent and never ending ability to make ourselves unhappy. If we are happy there seems to be a little voice in the background saying it won't last or in some way we don't deserve it. It is part of a protective cover we maintain so that we don't get hurt and we can say see I told you it wouldn't last.
The trouble is that attitudes like this are self-fulfilling. We make them come true so that we don't have to deal with the true underlying issue of self-worth, our purpose in life, or pay attention to open issues we have yet to deal with.
Being happy and making others happy is one of the few fundamental freedoms where it is directly our choice. So if happiness is a choice then why don't we choose it more often?

I choose to be happy. Every single day. I agree that our positive or negative thoughts are self fulfilling. I choose to be happy.

Yah, why not choose happiness when in fact it is free and no hassle whatsoever. With this mindset, we can now achieve what everyone is longing...a beautiful world that is worth living for.

We don't chose unhappyness. Happiness is just a moment, if we live in the good moments we will not go forward!

I believe that "happiness" is "The Meaning of Life." If you ever wanted to distill life down to its essence, its meaning, or to one single idea or meaning...this is the one word that does it.

Unfortunately, it is largely affected by brain chemistry!

Nobody in this world who want to sad or miserable, they all want happiness. Many ways they are doing to their lives happy, but it was all back to ourselves. How do we deal with it all .....

Most importantly let's face it all with a smile ....

Only required equanimity everyone.

Nevermind - this is my point of view!
In addition I usually try to stay happy. I think bad mood is devastating not only to me but also for the people around. And I just can't let this happen!

We may be unhappy because of various reasons and it varies from person to person as everyone have their own wish to be fulfilled. We now need to try out and put on the practice which makes us feel happy doesn't gives us sorrows.

Person's attitude matters a lot to be happy or unhappy. Always seeks for pleasure in the small moments of life . Never complain about what you are not having but cherish for what you are having .

I believe that happiness comes to us everyday in small packages but we often overlook these small happiness and look out for that one big parcel. Our negative outlook towards life also makes us feel that happiness is always short lived. My mantra of happiness is that, once we strike a balance with our lifestyles and with ourselves happiness will automatically come into our lives.
