Are You Happy?

Like a kid at heart. - People get old. True, only by age but not by heart. We may be seen as strong responsible individuals on the outside to protect ourselves from disrespect and discrimination. However, most of the times we hide in a place where nobody can't see. When we feel that we can't hold on anymore, when we drop those tears like a poor kid who wanted cake and ice cream on a birthday. Yes, only age grows but the heart is still.

Man is a rational being. Reason is always a part of the problem for there will be no solutions without it. It is the one responsible creating the challenge! Every circumstance no matter how unbelievable or convincing it is and whether good or bad shows reasons... There are always reasons for every person is capable to explain! Certainly, you are made up of REASONS... But think! Are you happy? We live in the world where there is conflict. Without this conflict, we cannot call this an existing world! Though at times, similarities distinct similarities and differences compare differences yet all of them are the same... They are of equal footage for they set the composition of reality. They make this life worth living for they make this place complete! There is a perfect world adverse to the general public for it is the pain which teaches us to recover, uplifts the world to stand! However if we are hurt, we don't usually mind the positives, we remember the negatives instead! And sometimes, pretend to forget... But think! Are you happy? Forgiveness is not that easy to release if a man is in doubt. Pride is behind it. If we will not encourage ourselves to accept the value of apology then we are weak... We are cowards for we are afraid to embrace the change! Bravery starts in simple things, in this called simplicity. True courage cannot be measured by the defense of the mind but by the attack of the genuine heart. Do know that the best defense is attack! The wholeness of the soul cannot be moved by the strength of the physical but by the purity of the intent. If we are in hatred, it's really hard to forgive. That is the fact! But think! Are you happy? We will live once... Why wait for another sunrise what we can do today? Thus, we must live life at its fullest regardless of any dare. Have a character to do in the dark what you would do in the light! Hence, if you let yourself be eaten and be controlled by your pride, by that PRIDE! That would still be a choice... But think! Are you happy? Sometimes we retreat when we know the risks that we might take. We tend to move backward because fear dominates us! Fear is the exact word that paralyzes the faculty of reason... And would eventually be bigger than ourselves if we let it! Now, will you let it? Can you let it? But think! Are you happy? People can be seen as supreme on the outside but in reality, not as equivalent of the inside. Indeed, superficial and shallow... Only the surface and not the beneath! We disguise because we are scared to show those weaknesses and that we are vulnerable with it. We cover up those true emotions for we don't want others to see us weak, to call us weak and to think that we are weak! We are letting the truth sleeps, concealing the deep sentiments simply because pride dictates the wrong move... But think! Are you happy? "ARE YOU HAPPY?" A simple question but hard to hear... Are you happy?

I think I am a person easily satisfied and happy. But now because my life is full of different kinds of stress, I feel a little negative sometimes. I hope my luck will come soon and restore me to a happy state.

Recently, my mood is in the lower point of life because failed to get a job. im finishing my study in high school and i had been hunting for job nearly 2 months. The result is failed to get a job as i expected to have it. Most of the company is required for more than 1 years working experiences which related to the position which i applied with. its might be the main reasons who i failed to get the employer offer. Lastly, i wish that i could get a good offer after this and i would give room my self for happy~~ ~~wish you always happy~~

hey Av! appreciate the toughness of the situation! remember the saying, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going! (; getting a job isn't that easy especially nowadays but everything has its reason and purpose. it's just a matter of TIME! & ohh, acceptance must be higher than any expectation although to expect isn't a bad thing of course! just take things slowly, you'll see it will lead you the way more than you desire, more than you expect! just continue to hope & to work for it as well with patience in your goal, with persistence in your heart.. (: wish you always happy too!
