I’m fairly happy, and I’m currently incarcerated. I would be really happy with some regular, consistent communication with “normal” people in society. Do to exercising, working out, reading, writing. I am able to maintain a decent balance. One day I’ll be free, I won’t be alone, I’ll be able to try to have a healthy healthy relationship. Until then, I’ll just continue to strive for this happiness that comes from inner peace. Not outer circumstances. This is a lot easier to read, and talk about, then do. But no matter what I will not intentionally put myself through a state of being unhappy.
So look if you are in a “dead end job”, relationship, marriage, abusive relationship, lost in your addiction? Or just stuck, or keep doing something that is not making you happy, then stop.
If you, or someone you love, is struggling in their addiction. Just ask yourself are you happy?
If you are in an abusive relationship, an unhealthy relationship. That you are attempting to suffer through because of some “sense of obligation”, kids or something else. Then either fix it, or get out of it. If you are in a marriage that has died, or lost its fire. In my opinion (being a follower of Christ). Then you took an oath, that was death do us part. So you need to fix it at all cost. Don’t give up, there is some reason you got married. You loved that person at some point. So isn’t love worth fighting for? So make that person fall in love with you again. Do something special (or to) them. But no matter what fight for that. Don’t just give up, and give in.
So the bottom line is, IF YOU ARE HAPPY? Stat the same. If not. Then change something. I wasn’t happy lost in my addiction and unhealthy relationships. I’m not happy being locked up either. But at least now I have my sober mind, and can hopefully find my way out. God bless anyone who reads this.
