Happiness Comes And Goes Throughout Life


Happiness will come to you several times throughout your life. It will greet you as if you were an old friend, and you will talk for hours about all of the wonderful memories you have shared before it has to dash to catch a train or get home in time for dinner. See, happiness will come to you many times throughout your life, but it will also leave you.

Happiness comes several times in life

Happiness will depart to assist you in growing, to assist you in feeling things that it would have only ever masked within you. You will learn how to befriend your sadness, you will learn to let it hold you. You will learn that you could not rely on happiness in certain areas of life, that it simply did not fit into the experiences that grew their lessons from grieving and heartache. Sadness will lace its fingers between yours, it will hold your hand and tell you that it understands your pain, that it understands your need to simply come to terms with your anguish and your remorse. Sadness will invite all of your demons out to lunch, it will make you talk to them, it will make you sit across from them and look into their eyes. Sadness will make you face yourself. Sadness will invite all of your demons to lunch, force you to converse with them, and force you to sit across from them and stare into their eyes. Sadness forces you to confront yourself.

Sadness is natural

Then, after a few days, months, or years, after lessons have entwined themselves around your questions, after comprehension has melted into your skin, you will hear a familiar knock within your chest. You’ll feel a familiar sense of Spring thawing within your ribcage, and your laughter will no longer crack. Happiness will slowly but steadily return to your life. It will sneak through a window you weren’t aware was open, or tuck itself with the wind to greet you on a rainy day. It will hide in the ink of your favourite book and dance to the music of your favourite song. Happiness thrives in the intervals between seconds, between the horizon and the sky. It can be found at the bottom of coffee cups and in sea salt. You’ll appreciate its presence and feel its warmth.

Happiness returns

Yes, happiness fades; but when it returns, you are always stronger, because you understand what it means to emerge from the wreckage, to survive in the dark.

        I can relate to that, but what other choice do we have except for ploughing through.
