What is life? What do we want from it? I do not know about the rest of you but my goal in life is being happy above all else. I think deep down inside all of us want to find happiness in their lives. We all need a purpose in life. Without purpose life would be meaningless and it would be hard to get past another day. Happiness can mean different things to different people. I feel happy when I spend money and get new things. But I am not sure whether that is to be considered true happiness. It think it would fall under the category of temporary happiness. We all go out in order to find happiness and most of us have no clue where to look. We search for it in all the wrong places. Here are the mistakes we all make on the road to finding happiness.
Some people refer to happiness as a goal that they will achieve in the future. They work hard get an education and job in order to achieve this happiness. Whether they find it or not depends on the kind of person. For some people achievements can be a source of happiness while for others it might not be the same case. Some people look for happiness with other people. This can be difficult as people can change with time.
There are those people that have temporary happiness. This might be brought by buying something new like me. By getting a raise or a promotion. All these things can give you happiness but only for a short amount of time. What you need to do is look for happiness inside you. Look into your soul and figure out the things that actually make you happy. It could be helping other people or spending time with your family. I have seen that the simple things in life are the ones that provide actual happiness. Small things in life make a big difference.
These were the mistakes we all make on the road to finding happiness. Hope this article gives you an insight into life and human behavior.
