What Price Happiness?
Ask the average
person in the street this question and they could probably tell you
the price of a luxury holiday, the cost of a new car or the house they
aspire to live in, but would struggle with quantifying happiness.
It is only when it comes to making an actual choice towards happiness
and fulfilment, that the price you are really prepared to pay becomes
For example, if faced with a decision about a life partner - to stay
in drudgery with someone you don't love or open a door of opportunity
to find it elsewhere, what would you give up in order to find a more
For some, it
would seem that they would rather put up with the drudgery and keep
the same home environment, the same routines, the same people in their
life. There is comfort in "status quo", where things don't
change much, where even if it is uncomfortable (and perhaps downright
painful at times), it seems better than not knowing what the future
People can endure the harshest treatment in the pursuit of "no
change". They will put on a brave face to others, cover up abuse,
pretend everything is fine and all along feel ashamed. Ashamed perhaps
because they feel that they deserve this punishment, ashamed that others
will think they are weak or ashamed because they know they are letting
themselves down. They will defend their partner/abuser, take on their
ideologies and promote them as their own. This way, they fool themselves
in to thinking they are shared ideas, instead of admitting to themselves
that they are not being true to their own values, but living someone
This is one end of the scale of what people will endure for the sake
of maintaining the status quo. More often it comes down to situations
like - "well there is no love between me and my partner, but if
we split up it means upheaval, selling the house, starting again!"
So, you put up with not being happy or fulfilled in your relationship,
because you put so much energy into your career, home, money, "long
term security", that it becomes too big a price to let go of it.
Another difficult life choice for some is in choosing a job.
If faced with
career choices, where one option could be exciting and fulfil your inner
dreams, versus something more mundane, but the pay is better, which
would you choose? It's surprising how many people go for the money and
then wonder why they aren't happy in their work!
Money, house, cars, "lifestyle" have become the mantra and
the measuring stick of society and it takes effort to choose something
different. Is the better job the one with the biggest salary? Is the
best dress the one with the biggest price tag?
but is it the ONLY yardstick for measuring the best for you in your
When life isn't too hard, people generally don't have any impetus to
do things differently, they'll accept their situation rather than strive
for more. Security in terms of assets (financial or material) will bring
comfort and provide for basic needs, but rarely brings true happiness
or meaning to life.
Some of the most frequently asked questions in psychic readings are
about "finding happiness" or "being happy", yet
risking their comfort seems to be too high a price for most to pay in
order to achieve it.
Next time you have a life choice to make, think about how many times
in your life you have put your own values and ideals lower on the list
to money, comfort or even other people's interests?
BECAUSE - IT IS ONLY WHEN YOU ARE LIVING TRUE TO YOUR OWN VALUES,
THAT YOU CAN START TO DISCOVER REAL INNER HAPPINESS AND REAL INNER SECURITY.
