Pursuing Happiness and Finding Love
Do we really have to pursue happiness or should we simply allow happiness to find us. I’ve seen people who go out of their way to pursue happiness by hopping from boyfriend to boyfriend all in the name of happiness. But yet they end up being the ones who are miserable. Within 12 months, my friend’s girlfriend has changed boyfriends 4 times. When her friends ask her why. She likes to say she doesn’t give a damn. All that really matters to her is being “HAPPY”

When the relationship starts u really cannot tell if it is gonna work or not. And like in any other relationship problems will set in. Does this suggest that you have to move on???I really don’t understand her reasoning. She seems excited to start something new all the time.

Do we really have to go to that extent to find happiness???

Someone once said that many people are pushing so hard at the door leading to happiness, without recognizing that the door opens inwards --- so the harder they push against it, the more firmly it is shut ; only when they stop pushing, it will swing open, towards them.
