You Can't Buy Happiness
We’ve all heard that you can’t buy happiness, but how many of us live as if this were true? I think a lot of people have given up on the pursuit of happiness and settle for things. Deep down we know that things can never make us truly happy yet will still keep reaching for more in the hopes that the next thing will make us happy. So each day we pull out our list of desires and start chasing the next thing. We settle for more and more things, which gives us an intoxicated feeling of temporary happiness. And when the desire is satiated we are off chasing the next thing. This process of desire and craving and getting what you want and then losing what you have is the definition of sufferng. All happiness that is gained is followed by unhappiness.
