You can choose to be happy? SCREW YOU!
WHY DON’T YOU CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY?
This is probably a phrase that you have heard time and time again.
I’ve been through bouts of depression and serious anxiety, but whenever I tried to talk about it with anyone, people would often ask why am I living like that. Why aren’t I choosing to be happy?
The question is insulting. If we could choose to be happy, then why would anyone live any other way?
Why would we have depression, sadness, a worldwide mental health epidemic, if being happy was as simple as flipping a switch?
And it’s this subject that I want to touch on today and discover how we can work out a way towards happiness, if it isn’t simply a choice to be made.
