This trending new-age obstinate pursuit of happiness is clearly leading mankind towards a cliff of dissatisfaction and misery. More specifically to the younger generation. It's almost as if the feeling of being miserable is allowed, but not welcomed. I say embrace your fucking pain! Welcome it with open arms. Talk with it. Explore it. After a comprehensive examination of the facts causing your pain, you will become a new version of yourself like a snake shedding it's skin. And that shit feels good I tell ya!
People choose to put on a inspiring meme-quote on Instagram instead of practicing exactly what they are posting. Ex-liaisons keeping tabs on each other on Facebook even after they moved on with their new bae. Allegedly, of course! Why not just talk and express how miserable you feel and free yourself from your emotional holding? After all, if you can express your happiness to the fullest, then why not the opposite?
We are becoming so banal with current affairs and dealings with our own lives that we think we are capable of solving everything with our head. Which is not the whole truth. I'm not writing this post to give out a solution to your situation. Each individual's situation is different.
But rest assure that your [situation] is real. The cause that triggered your [situation] is a fact. The emotional reaction that you are feeling is live, which makes you alive. It makes you who you are and that is called being a human. Keyword: BEING.
