Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
I think there is an over-focus on the idea of happiness in our society.
This idea that we all need to be happy all the time, that happiness should come naturally and easily to us.
These are fallacies.
No one is happy all the time. If we were happy all the time it would become meaningless.
Happiness as a goal is unhealthy in a lot of ways. Goals of being healthy, goals of letting go of past hurts and goals of over-coming depression and anxiety are healthy and may as a by-product produce some happiness.
