Life can’t be perfect; it isn’t and it will never be. Having said that; if we never had a worry or concern in our life we would not appreciate the good things that life brings. We have all had our ups and downs and rounds of sorrow, regrets and dissappointments, and without these we would not have become more tolerant of other peoples sorrows. It is by these that we grow into being better individuals. After all, if we can learn the importance of tolerance in our lives; we become more stable and able humans to help others and also carry our own load of troubles.
Life is wonderfully not all trouble……thank goodness. It it were we would not only not be able to bear it but, we would not want to live a long life either. There is a balance that we must gain and when down we should remember the good times and give the God of all humans thanks for the good. We seem to forget to do that. Humans we are! By being thankful for the many good things in life that overshadow the bad; we are able to know that at some point whatever we are going through will somehow come to an end and it will give us courage to keep holding on during the not so positive situations. It gives us courage and hope for a brighter day which we know will come in time.
When finding faith to go on is hard; we must look for new strength and ways to relish on the times that we have had what had seemed to good to be true. Faith is something that we should always keep renewed because if we lose faith; it is hard to keep believing in anything. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen.” Found in Hebrews 11:11. Faith keeps us hoping and hope is something else we can’t be without. Without hope we perish….so we must keep our faith and hope and know that life will mend in its own time.
It is easy for someone else to tell us what we need to do. True. But, it is easier for them to help us, because simply, their thinking is sometimes clearer than ours. When we are down; we should not push others away, but, it is a great time to allow ourselves to be taken in and given comfort from those who really care about us and have our best interest at heart. It is not being a burden if another person wants to listen; just make sure you know the person really well. Our friends and family have been given to us for a reason.
Sometimes when Life Isn’t Perfect; we must learn forgiveness and that “ain’t” always easy…… How do we learn to forgive someone or something that has happened when it seems to have taken our life away? We start by knowing that we have hurt others also and that to be forgiven; we must forgive others also. Nope, there is no way around this one and if you can’t forgive; you will at some point wish you had. If you dare to run sometimes someone has done in the ground and do not let go of the anger; it will torment you to death and finally destroy you. It happens….believe it and though it may take time to forgive; it will set you free from the past. It will give you a different outlook on life and help you want to go forward….with hope and faith.

Most people today forget that happiness is a frame of mind, not a connection with another soul and that is why we asks; Why Aren’t You Happy? This could be the very reason because so many individuals only believe they are happy along as they have someone besides them to fill the void. Some do not know why they are unhappy, they just are. Some just mosey along and don’t think much about it one way or the other. At any rate; live will go on even when there is no one around us…so….get with it and take a look inside that soul of yours and find out just why you aren’t happy.
Some individuals get into a rut of living their life; like a merry-go-round. They just go round and round without taking the time to analyze if they are living their life to the fullest. This isn’t acceptable for anyone because life become a bore then and people do all sorts of things when they are bored. It is believed that one must first see their need to change their life; before it is beneficial to do so or before they can begin.
If one suddenly realizes they are unhappy, they should then seek within themselves for a clear stance on what is making them unhappy. It is hard to know sometimes and seem fruitless. Once we realize we “might” be unhappy; we must truly realize that another person cannot make us happy. Our happiness is solely dependent upon us, our stance on our life and how we live it. Happiness comes from within and it is based upon our view of how we are living our life. Are we living life to the fullest? Are we just surviving? Are we doing something good for mankind? Do we feel complete in that we do not feel alone? Are we sharing our life with others in a positive way? Can we change something that needs changing to help us feel the happiness we feel we are lacking? Are we really living our life in full swing or we muddling through it out of repetition? Are we stuck? Are we insecure in some way? Are we sure we are unhappy?
There are many more questions we might need to ask ourselves and answer honestly. Why Aren’t You Happy, is one of those that should be an hones assessment. Being honest with ourselves makes us honest with others. Seeking more wholeness within ourselves, means that we do not depend upon someone else to make us happy. We know that we are a whole person even when no one is around to hold us up. We can stand straight and tall as we are confident that we are doing our best and we know who we are and what we stand for and those things are all good.
We have all seen people who seem to have it all. Every time you see them; they are in the best mood and life seems to be so good for them. Or, have they just learned, that we are what we project? If you desire to be happy; act happy. If you want to appear to be happy to others, act as though you are and before you know it; you will be. Same way with words. We are what we speak; if we speak negative things; they very well may turn out negative. Life sometimes throws us a curve but in the end, it is not the curve that gets us; it is the way we handle the curve.
Why aren’t you happy? Don’t know? Try acting like you are and see what happens….chances are you might find out that you are happier than you think.
