What It REALLY Means to Be Happy

December 10, 2019

Happiness does not equal:

  • No longer getting depressed.

  • No longer getting anxious.

  • Having the "perfect" partner.

  • Having a comfortable amount of money.

  • Achieving all of your goals.


I'll admit that I've struggled with this lately. Especially thinking that a life completely free of anxiety or depression is realistic. However, I'm still learning that if I constantly think that reaching these goals will bring me happiness, then I'll never be happy at all.


Yes, goals are important, but what's also important is being realistic and being grateful for what we have now.


What I'm grateful for:

  • Having friends who I love who also care about me.

  • Having a job that I love and have worked hard for.

  • Having a home I feel safe and comfortable in.

  • Having parents who want me to be happy.

  • Having a platform to help others, but also help myself.


No life is 100% free of anxiety, depression, or any negative feelings, no matter how “perfect” their life may seem. No person is happy 100% of the time, no matter what goals they accomplish.

Let’s make a conscious effort to stop waiting for happiness and start focusing on what we have now. ❤️ After all, it’s our own life that we’re left with at the end of the day.
