In 2018, everyone is selling happiness. Be it Tinder, new bigger iPhone or your boss. Writers have become millionaires by teaching you how to be happy.
What exactly is happiness, is it something one can buy or own?
For some getting extrinsic appreciation acts as motivation. This is what has made all social media apps so valuable. The quest for receiving social appreciation fuels happiness. These people share everything in public: eating, meeting, traveling, running, et al.
I am not judging the seekers of extrinsic happiness. We humans are different.
There is another group. The ones who like living with themselves. A private life, happy in their own little-isolated world. External appreciation has no role to play in their happiness.
Which one are you?
