3 Common Myths about Happiness

Myths #1:

Happiness is a natural state of human mind

Human emotions are like weather, sometimes it’s colder, sometimes it’s hotter, it’s completely normal to feel unhappy and depressed sometimes.

Myth #2:

People confuse happiness with pleasure

Pleasure is often driven by comfort and materials. Living a happy life doesn’t mean being excessively indulged in pleasure; it means being open-minded and flexible to accept pain and be courageous to embrace a full-range of emotions


If I am not happy, something must be wrong

Lots of normal human emotions have been pathologised nowadays - when we experience negative emotions, our first reaction is usually “how to fix this” or “what’s wrong with me”, which is entirely not true. It is perfectly normal to experience ups and downs.
