If you are doing this, you are lying to yourself about being happy.

You say you are happy in your relationship, or marriage. You are probably only saying it though. You feel secure. You got married. You have a house. You even have kids. You say that you are in love.

You are really not happy because you can’t dare to face the truth. You know the love has already disappeared. You know the excitement has withered. You have been doing what was anticipated of you.

You should follow your heart, if you desire to be happy in love. Take the courage to escape from a comfortable relationship, and do not rush into something just because of circumstances. Your heart knows best.

You are saying you are contented with your career. You have studied hard and graduated with flying colors. You continued to get a job for stability and money, but you are not happy since the work is exhausting you. You are no longer challenged. All that are in front of you are the things you do not have passion, and what’s more, your coworkers and superior are toxic.

If you want to be happy with the work you do, then start something on your own today, or find a job that truly matches you. If not, take it slow, but start now. Remember that you are not your job. Your individuality is not your job. What your coworkers or superior say to put you down are never true. Leave all work in the office, and go home every day to lead your life.

You’re saying you’re happy with your family. They are after all, your family. They’re your mom, dad, brother, and sister.

But you’re not happy because you deep down, you know your family isn’t good for you. Your family is toxic. They’re abusive.

Sadly in life, some people are not capable of love, even if you can call them your mom or dad. The sooner you understand this, the better. You need to step away.

You’re saying you’re happy with the friends around you. You get to call them friends alright. Some of them, you’ve known for several years since you were young.

But you’re not happy because they’re toxic. They’re irritating. They are controlling . They take advantage of you. They bring you down all the time.

If you want to be happy, you need to surround yourself with affirmative relationships. You have to stand up for yourself and make sure your friends encourage you. Also, note that people change. That is something you have to get over. You need to give up of friendships that were born years ago. If it’s not positive anymore, just move on.

You’re saying you’re happy from staying in one place permanently. It’s safe. It’s comfortable and you have all you need at home.

But you’re not happy because you’re bored, and deep inside you feel it. You feel that sense of distress and that your time is being wasted.

Truly, life is too short for a world this big. If you want to be happy, start opening your mind and expanding your horizons. Go travel! Learn different cultures and meet different people. I promise that you will always come home to be more appreciative of your life.

You’re saying you’re happy when deep down you know that you’re not. Not at all.

You’ve got difficulties, but you have never confronted them head on.

You have issues, but you have never fixed them because you are frightened.

You have dreams, but you have never chased them because you have been making up excuses.

You’re not happy with the person you see in the mirror, but you lie to him or her anyway.

Maybe it’s time for a transformation!

You deserve it.
