True happiness is

 

 

People think a soul mate is our perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because (s)he tear down your walls and smack you awake. Come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you.

A soul mate purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.

A soul mate close to happiness. People universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend upon you like fine weather in the summer. But that’s not how happiness works.

Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes travel the around the world looking for it. Once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.

Happiness is a tool, not the ultimate goal. It’s an asset that give us energy to put us in good mood to accomplish goal. Struggle to catch happiness isn’t easy because the reason why people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was and the present worse than it is.
