My Belief System
At the very base of what I believe about myself is that my purpose, everyone’s purpose, is to be happy. It stems from my belief that when I die, that’s it. So if there’s nothing before life, nothing after, there’s just life. It seems wasteful to live it any other way than happily, so that must be the point.
“Happiness isn’t real unless it is shared.” This means that living happily alone is a falacy. You have to be part of a group, to share your life, to be part of a community in order for your happiness to carry any weight. This means that you must compromise and sacrifice at times, in order to remain a part of that community. What you lose in happiness, you gain in validation that your happiness is real.
Struggle is necessary for happiness.
I need to be needed.
