Why Are We Unhappy?

Drop file here to send
Happiness DOES NOT come from external things… That lie that everybody has ever told me is simply an excuse; it’s a lie we tell ourselves because of the lack of education! The truth is you will never, ever be happy until you understand that happiness comes from inside of you.

When you chase success, money, houses, cars, or people you go into a rabbit hole. Once you achieve or get whatever you wanted, you will then want something else and you will tell yourself: “Ok, I’m still not happy because I still need this…” WRONG! You’re not happy because you don’t even know what happiness is, looks like, or where it even comes from!

You see, there is no bigger limitation than what you tell yourself. In the same way, there is nobody that can make you feel as good as only you can. The problem is that only 1% of people know this.

Why do you think you're unhappy? What is causing it? How do you think you can you be happier?

In single word, I would say, because we are IMPATIENT.

I had placed a order with Amazon and it was all set to be delivered today. Due to some technical glitch, it is now rescheduled for Monday. It made me little sad.

Today’s world how our happiness depends on these small things. We have the world in our hands. We have the best teacher in Google. The best friends on Facebook. The best life on Instagram. Our life is instant now.

I think this would be applicable to millennial's. You’ve created sadness for yourself out of absolutely nothing.

In my opinion the reason our generation is so unhappy is because it has become too easy to compare ourselves with others.

With things like social media becoming more and more prevalent, people can now see the 0.001% of people. They see the child prodigy musicians, the 15 year old doctors, the 13 year old Harvard graduates, the geniuses of our time and they can’t help but compare themselves to them.

Seeing these people leads to people having extremely high expectations of themselves and unrealistic ambitions.

Another reason our generation is unhappy is because media tends to fixate on negatives.

You watch the news and you hear about these terrible things. Neo-Nazi’s, natural disasters, corrupt politicians. You never hear about anything good. Do you?

‘Why Me?’ syndrome. It is a tough condition though very common. It happens when one argues why the things that happened, happened to him only and not to that next door guy. Being busy in cursing his fate he looses the track of time and pace of this world. This makes him slower. Then he argues ‘Why Me?’. With all this he indulges in bunking classes, missing tests, watching that video which tells how people mischievously become rich. He looses his grades. He thinks ‘Why Me?’. He is more sad than ever. He dives into sea of depression thinking that the fate will have mercy on him and save him. He is wrong. He is lost. He says ‘Why Me?’.

You have a point there.

One is a lot of people do not love themselves, when we speak of loving yourself everybody thinks of the hedonistic pursuit of doing whatever you want but they're wrong, loving yourself is doing the difficult things like exercising, eating right, bettering yourself the things that take discipline because you know in the long run it is better for you. Secondly people cannot exist in the present moment they can't just enjoy now , they're always having expectations for the future and wallowing in the past being in the present moment is being alive and being grateful for it.

Increased unhappiness results from our deteriorating social relationships. Relationships with family, peers, colleagues, neighbors, and community members have proven over and over to be the biggest determining factor in our happiness, once our basic needs are met. Yet because we’re working more than ever before to afford and maintain all this Stuff, we’re spending more time alone and less time with family, with friends, with neighbors.

We are unhappy because of all the expectations put on us. Doubting myself . Can I do it? What if I can't? What the?
