“ You are feeling well when you are really happy, even if you are diagnosed as medically ill. Fundamentally well being means a certain level of joyfulness, certain exuberance of life ”
Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you're friends is easy. Being friends is not.
If you have become a joy by yourself and you are forming relationships because you want to express your happiness, nobody is going to complain about you because you are in the process of expressing your joy not seeking joy from the other person.
If you really want to have absolutely fantastic relationships.. you need to establish yourself as a joyful human being
Why we are continuously talking about joy, blissfulness, love, is not because it's a goal by itself, these are not goals by itself -only when you are pleasant by your own nature, you stop being in pursuit of happiness. You are fine by yourself, you don't have to go anywhere to feel pleasant. You don't have to do anything to feel pleasant
If your work is an expression of your joyfulness, whether recognition or no recognition, what does it matter?
