Has stress transformed you into someone you barely recognize?
There are three Happiness myths that when we believe them, actually lead to more unhappiness.
Happiness Myth # 1: As long as our needs our met, our natural state is happiness.
Happiness Myth #2: Happiness means feeling good
The truth is:
Life invites us to feel the full spectrum of human emotion. The “good”, the “bad”, the “ugly”. Only reaching for the “good” is like telling life “no. I don’t want what you’re offering.” We split ourselves up and we end up suffering more.
Let’s redefine happiness as living a rich, meaningful and fulfilling life… and accept that that sometimes means facing hardship, experiencing uncertainty and anxiety, experiencing loss and sadness, maybe even having to experience anger to fight for what is right. Let us INCLUDE all of that in our new definition of happiness.
Happiness Myth #3: If you’re not happy, you’re defective.
Isn’t it crazy how our ideas about happiness are what lead to suffering in the first place?
If stress/suffering/unhappiness has turned you into a less version of yourself (perpetually tired, cranky, irritated) … will you let me help transform you back to the prince-ss that you are?
