Happiness is an odd thing. We chase it, we fear it, we lose it, we gain it. But happiness is not like a balloon that we can chase or fear or lose or gain because it’s not a thing, it’s not tangible, it’s doesn’t taste of anything or sound of anything. Some people may say it comes in the form of laughter or money or family or friends or lovers but that is all built on preference there is no objective happiness which means we have the ability to create our own happiness. The fact that we are the Creator of our own happiness gives us power and maybe it’s that we fear. If we have the power to create our own happiness we have only ourselves to blame if we lose it.
