I think. 
We’re so focused on it. 

Blog posts. 

Advice Gurus. 
All proclaim how to achieve happiness. 

Like it is the purpose of life. 

The end goal. 
But is it really? 

That utopia doesn’t exist. 

You know that right? 

A permanent state of happiness. 
So what if instead. 

We accepted. 

That fear, failure, sorrow, pain, heartbreak, loss, disruption, unhappiness and disgust are all perfectly acceptable. 

Invited even. 

As a step to self development. 

Get there.
