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.
