The happiness myth 关于幸福的神话
Every year, more books on happiness are published. And every year, more people feel depressed because they do not consider themselves to be happy. They don't remember or know what it feels like, and instead, they feel guilty that they aren't as happy as everyone says they should be. This is really a sad state of emotional affairs. 6park.comThe books, blogs, YouTube videos and advice columns will tell you that if you read, exercise, stay busy, help others, and increase your intimacy （親密） every day, then you too can be happy. 6park.comThe simple truth is that no one can be happy all the time, which doesn't mean you have to be sad, angry, or depressed the rest of the time but that you can find a middle ground called contentment. This middle ground is a good place mentally and emotionally, and spending time there is a healthy choice. 6park.comContentment is somewhere between satisfaction and peace. When you are in that place, the stuff of life can be going on around you, but you don't need to allow it to bother you. And that, my friends, is a very nice way to go through life. 6park.comI find contentment in walks, in writing, and in talking with my partners and reminding each other that our life is good, despite temporary setbacks or scary moments. Because I know about myself and I can respond differently. Doing this takes away stress and will keep you from losing your state of contentment. 6park.comIf there is even one thing that puts you in a state of contentment—you do it regularly and early enough each day—it will help you go through any challenges you may have to face later. 6park.comRight at this moment, things around me are still a little out of my control— such is life—but I am feeling pretty good because I am actively living my purpose. I am now content, and that feeling will last the whole day through. You can do the same.
