This is My Psychosis
Happiness is relative.
As much as we think or say that we cannot ever be truly happy [because of some tragedy or drama in our lives] we know in our hearts that it does not take a lot to tug both ends of our lips upwards.
Fact is, we can always CHOOSE to be happy.
We can tell that dark cloud to “SHOO!”
But the trick there is to really WANT to be happy.
We have to push ourselves to get over the past or get past the problem and just be happy about even the most mundane things in life.
I know it’s not as simple as coming from point A and going to point B. It’s a tricky road with lots of curves and zigzags.
However, determination is a good way to drive yourself forward. Heart will be your fuel and friends will make your aim strong and true. And of course, God and prayer will be your shield against all obstacles.
