as a Single Person
Harlan Jacobsen Copyright © 2003
Happiness is something that everybody seems to want but few seem to have found.
When you were five years old you decided if you could get old enough to be in school, then you would be happy.Then you decided happiness was the big kids in high school, that was where it was really at.
When you got into high school and you decided if you could just get old enough to graduate, get a drivers license and be on your own then you would be happy.After arriving there you decided if you could just find someone super and get married, well then you would be happy.
When somehow it seemed if you could just get enough money to pay all the bills and get all the things you wanted then you would be happy.You finally put all that together and you discovered you were still not happy so you decided it must be your spouse, you needed someone else to be happy so you get divorced.
Now you say if I could just find someone super, then I would be happy.Some of the people I have ran into have give up on that and decided they would get their reward for being miserable here and they would be happy in the next life.
Personally I sort of doubt it.Happiness is a learned habit.
Unhappiness is a learned habit.Your happiness state is not earned and it is not deserved.
Abraham Lincoln said most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.Ben Franklin said "All the constitution guarantees my friend is the pursuit of happiness.
You have to catch up to it yourself."Many singles are searching for someone, a Mr. or Ms. Right to make them happy.
That is a pretty big burden to lay on anyone.N o one can make you happy.
No, money can not make you happy either. (it is better to be miserable with, though, then without).The definition of happiness is:
People who have pleasant thoughts most of the time (happy) think better, perform better, feel better, look better, are healthier and live longer.An unhappy single person repels that super someone for them, a happy person attracts them like a magnet.
If you have it all together as a happy person on your own, there will be plenty of friends that will want to bask in your sunshine, and share your happy life.
