The Topic is Happiness.
What is happiness? It is a feeling of contentment caused when your mental health is good and you acknowledge that you have acquired or achieved something that makes you happy, or you realise that there is no reason to be unhappy. It is a mental attitude and it can be a choice, however, for someone suffering depression, this is not something that happens quite as well. So, In quoting Aeschylus below, I acknowledge that for some of us, simply choosing to be happy, doesn’t quite work as well.
“Money or things can’t buy you happiness, they can only provide a level of misery you can live with. “
I would also like to share with you a song lyric/poem that I wrote a while ago. It’s called Happiness:
When will I find Happiness?
I try to keep hopeful, but I confess
I have almost given up
Dreaming, hoping of the day
When I will find
Someone to love me, who is kind.
Happiness, I admit it, I am in Distress
The time left to me is getting less
Do I still have the chance
Of attracting someone nice?
Am I too Old?
Will I be left out in the cold?
When I was young I played the fool
Thought settling down was just uncool
But now I know I wasted time.
Looking back, I’ve passed my prime.
Will I ever find what I am looking for?
Or will I continue living without…..
Happiness. When will I find Happiness?
I feel my life is such a shameful mess.
And yet, somehow, I know
There is always tomorrow,
and I will find,
The one for me is, in my mind
and I’ll find happiness.
