Sometimes it gets worse.

Before it can get any better.

It’s a common truth that happiness, no matter how perceived, doesn’t really last forever. At one point we have to face the ugly truth, the reality of life. Taxes, bills, expensive food, dumb politicians, mad people, and so on. The good things are still there if you have the ability to see them. But you just suddenly see all the “bads”, all the cons.


Oftentimes when the brutal reality hits us we feel like we’re just the most unlucky people ever. Because everyone else looks super happy, at least online. They do things, hang out, go for a drink or two, cinema, restaurant, city breaks. And you’re there, on the couch, and everything seems to fall on your head.


But if you don’t have any health problems, your relatives are alive and you have a roof above your head, then you’re very lucky. You could have all the billions in your pocket, but what if you get cancer or your mother has a heart attack? You can’t buy health for yourself or someone else. So try to look at things from the other perspective before judging yourself as the black cat on the road.


We all go through minor and major problems throughout our life and in between, we have the “happy periods”. That’s how it is. The most important thing is to realize when you’re in the “happy period” not to miss a thing. Because most of the people don’t know that they were glad until it’s over.

“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” Andy Bernard from “The Office”

That’s it from me for today. I mention health as one of the most important “happiness” factors because nowadays, many people don’t have the luck in this area. I hope you all are ok and have a nice following week! See you soon with another post.
