DailyDirt: Happiness Is...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The topic of death and suicide has been floating around the media lately -- from the gun control proposals to try to prevent future school shootings to the prominent suicide of internet activist, Aaron Swartz. So to fight some of these negative thoughts, here are just a few articles on happiness. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Happiness is simple, you create happiness and only you can find the reasons to be happy, nobody else.

    Funny thing though, most people have to endure a life of misery learning the basics of life.

    - Shit happens get over it. You can find some reasons for things that happen but if for some reason it is beyond your own means of understanding, let it go, don't let things that you can't prevent or understand become the sole reason for living and a measure of happiness, so not having the things you dream of, or not achieving something because of your own shortcomings should not be viewed as some kind of failure.
    - You don't control anyone, they all have their own minds and try to control others and are unhappy when they can't, so let it go.

    Maybe the most important lesson in life comes with old age, it is when most people learn to let go.

    As a little curiosity the most high rates of happiness are found among old people.
