10 Things You DO NOT Need To Be Happy!
Published: Aug 18, 2015

We spend all our lives searching for happiness. We believe a new phone, a better job or a perfect partner will bring us the ultimate happiness we have been looking for. But all these things only bring temporary satisfaction. Not happiness.

“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.  You will never truly live if you are forever looking for the meaning of life.”
―Albert Camus

Here are 10 things that you DO NOT need to be happy in your life:

1. The word “ideal” should not exist. You need to see how wonderful your life already is.


2. The biggest prison you will likely ever live in is your fear of what other people think.


3. Do not let the shadows of your past darken the doorstep of your present and future.


4. You can’t control EVERYTHING. The best thing you can do is to let go of what you can’t control, and invest your energy in the things you can.


5. You won’t enjoy your life if you don’t enjoy your challenges.


6. Happiness is valuing what you have, and enjoying the people, places, objects and events in your life for what they are instead of thinking about:


7. The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.


8. Whatever is happening in your friend’s life should not make you feel sad about yours.


9. A perfect relationship or a perfect partner is not your key to happiness. Don’t expect it to be.


10. The bottom line is that you can’t be completely happy without being unhappy sometimes.


Don’t try too hard to be happy, find happiness in the little things around you!

Keep smiling!
