It’s the ultimate goal in life. People seek it from everything and try to find it in all available outlets. From what I have learned in my brief time here on earth, happiness comes from yourself. Yes, you can reach happiness from different activities, but the root of it all is inside of you. You have the power to determine your own happiness. It is your hand that turns on the sad music or keeps looking through the old boyfriend’s pictures online. I understand the temptation is always there, but at the end of the day, it was your choice to bring yourself down to that level. Not including the effects of mental illness in this ideology.
