I was asked the question about what makes me happy and I couldn’t quite answer the question straight without going round the houses a few times.
Without putting a total damper on things, when we’ve lived with trauma, I don’t believe we own that particular feeling. True happiness comes from the soul. It’s what our sole has or hasn’t had. If the soul continues to be nurtured, we will feel happy.
I’d like to think I do the best with what I’ve been given. Happiness isn’t something you just accrue when you feel like it. Stress adds to how we feel; unless you correct what is fundamentally wrong, inwardly you will never know what being happy, truly means.
It’s not that someone can’t make you happy, but when our soul and lives have been conditioned, it’s that conditioning that stops us from being genuinely happy.
We must dig deep and peel back the layers. We must also take away any daily stress and surround ourselves with people that we know will make a difference, where we didn’t have that before.
If we don’t feel happy in our soul, we haven’t experienced true happiness. Unfortunately, everything we feel outwardly comes from the soul.
