Mark Manson on the illusion of perfect happiness.
Happiness isn’t feeing good, happiness is finding something more important that feeling good. It’s finding something that you’re willing to be dissatisfied for.
If you think about raising a kid or her;ing out a family member who’s on hard times, or earning your degree. Like doing something very difficult. These are all things that aren’t necessarily pleasurable, you’re not necessarily happy doing them, but, they’re worthwhile. And the fact that they’re worthwhile means that you never regret the effort.
