It’s ok to look for happiness and enjoy it when you find it.“This is too good to be true, what’s going to go wrong?” Sound familiar? It’s a very commonly used saying in all its forms. As soon as we adopt this line of thinking we stop enjoying what’s happening for us and instead look for ways that will destroy us.This will continue to happen until it becomes engrained into us when we see a moment of happiness to dismiss it and go for the negative to counter act it.But why do we put ourselves through it? Born from a mindset of “if I’m not happy then I won’t be hurt” we look for ways to distance ourselves from joy. Anger, sadness, defeat, and hurt become our normal search pattern. Our hopes can’t be slaughtered if we don’t have any, this generally is a learned behaviour. Past experiences in relevant areas, and influences from important people in our lives that we had faith in only to be let down and hurt by them. These are just two examples of the things that will if we let them tear our search for happiness apart.It’s essential to remember that your past isn’t your future, the type people you used to associate with aren’t the same now.It’s time to take a chance to find your happiness, to not let the people that brought you down continue to keep you hurting long after they have left your life.
