Sunday, 10:30 am. With my eyes still shut, I grabbed the radio beside my bed and in a few moments, Sandra’s voice started to fill my room. Once I had regained full consciousness, I suddenly realized, some voice was telling me, there is simply no way for me to live without his washing product. So I turned on the TV, soon fascinated by some woman drinking from a bottle of mineral water, dancing through a square, accompanied by roughly hundred others.
Usually, if you feel unhappy, it’s much better to try to come out with a solution how to be happier, than to make it worse. Trust me, if there is in this moment no actual way to get out from your sorrow, then pessimism will be totally irrational. Don’t tell me to overcome your mind’s stereotypes is harder than to suffer even more from feeling unhappy about it. My friends, we are masters of misinterpreting our emotions. We are masters of confusing happiness with joy. By happiness, we mean something lasting, some ever-present good feeling and stability in our lives, letting us live peacefully, not allowing ourselves to loose patience and be pessimistic. On contrary, joy is an evanescent emotion, a sudden spike of endorphins we feel from time to time, lasting only for a few moments and then, it often goes as fast as it comes. Tell me, how could you exchange the whole life of happiness for this unstable and occasional pleasure, usually separated by long times of suffering from our own desires and ignorance.
It isn’t easy, but it’s possible. It’s totally worth trying. Every single one of us is going to be dead for an unimaginably long time. Our life is a very short adventure on Earth. Why make it even shorter?…
