They say “People are happy because they choose to be”. Well, I call bullshit.
Don’t you get it? I want to be happy. I want to work hard all week and then go out and have fun on the weekends. But it’s not enough to want it. Wanting it doesn’t work.
People say you choose happiness. But what about when it’s not an option? When you want it so bad, but for some reason out of all the things in the world that you can choose to do and be – happy isn’t one of them. What then?
