People have spent eternity trying to understand, neatly package up and sell the idea of happiness – but what is happiness and how can we get more of it?
Society conditions us to believe there should be no discomfort in life, and when we are uncomfortable we feel things are terribly wrong. We resist anything that feels uncomfortable. But the reverse is actually true – things that make us feel uncomfortable can be the very things that challenge us, make us stronger and build confidence and self esteem. When we build confidence in ourselves we feel happier.
Confidence is not a thing you can see. Or hold in your hand. It’s not something you can photograph or get out of your pocket to show someone. As far as I know you can’t get any from Ebay or Amazon. It’s certainly not something you can give someone either.
