There’s nothing wrong on wanting to be happy in life.
People say that all the time when being asked question “What is your goal in life?” I said, “To be happy” they said.
But, the meaning of itself is so blurry, people are confused between happiness and pleasure. Happiness is not your partner,
happiness is not your career,
happiness is not your social media likes, happiness is not travelling.
Those are pleasures. And if you depend your happiness on those external things, you’re not gonna be happy once it’s being taken away from you.
Happiness is having the freedom and power to choose your own life, despite of its suffering; taking control of it and having the gratitude to enjoy every little moment in between as side dishes. So, the next time people ask you “What is your goal in life?” Tell them what kind of life you want, despite of its sufferings and trials.
