La quête du bonheur. The pursuit of happiness. What’s the secret to your happiness? A friend once asked. I actually laughed at that question. Not because there was something wrong with the question. But because I never thought happiness would have a “secret” ingredient. I then replied, “No secret honestly. I have gone through so much in life. I have come to realise that the mind is a powerful weapon. So trying not to be negative has helped me. Obviously praying and conversing with God. Conversing with the friends I have. Reading. And focusing on my goals and hobbies. Bearing in mind that God’s in control and fully trusting in Him”. So we basically have the option to choose what to do in any situation. Believe me when I say it’s easier said than done but it is certainly possible. We have to learn to train our mind to find positivity in any circumstance. Be it bullying or jealousy and so forth, you decide to choose if you’ll let it affect you or not. Only YOU get to choose how to respond. No one can determine your happiness but You. Don’t strain yourself, it takes time. Step by step. Petit a petit.
