A Lie We Tell Ourselves

Here’s a lie we tell ourselves:

When this or that happens, I’ll be happy.

This or that may never happen which means we’ll never be happy.

Wherever we are, whatever we’re doing, make peace with ourselves and choose to be happy.

Regardless of our current situation and circumstances, find peace and be happy.

Here are some examples:

When I buy this or that house, I’ll be happy.

When I live in this or that area or neighborhood, I’ll be happy.

When I get this or that job or have this or that business, I’ll be happy.

When I have this or that much money, I’ll be happy.

When I buy this or that vehicle, I’ll be happy.

When I lose this or that amount of weight or look like this or that, I’ll be happy.

When I get married and have children, I’ll be happy.

The list goes on and on.
