The Happiness Handbook

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.” - Aristotle

Saturday’s introspection…

We put up walls, these allegoric barriers, and we tell ourselves it’s not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to knock them down; but that’s ridiculous. What we’re really doing is trying to corroborate our belief that nobody loves us, by setting an unattainable task that people will indubitably fail at; so that when they do, we can then say to ourselves, “see, it’s true, nobody loves me, nobody wants to help me, nobody cares enough to knock the wall down”.
The reality is we make the walls so high, and so thick, and so completely indestructible, that it’s simply IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to knock them down. It’s like asking someone to tunnel their way through concrete with their bare hands.
