Being happy is a state of self. It has more to do with our intrinsic well-being. The wealthiest ones died of melancholy.
Happiness is about celebrating small wins, being grateful to the world, and loving oneself equally. It also comes from being satisfied internally. The internal guilt, unmet expectations, and failure in love or profession torment us. It is again on us if we want to live in pain or let these go and live happily.
Our happiness increases with external factors like loved ones, friends, and families, but deep inside our thoughts, it is all about us, ourselves, and how we see the world through our lens. The choice of living boils down upon us, our thoughts, and taming the monkey mind.
