Never chase happiness..

Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder…

— Henry David Thoreau


Precisely! This quote is one of my favorite quotations of all time. For me, this is all  about the freedom of someone you like or love that no matter how much you love to be with them, you need to set them free  even if  letting them go means hurting your own self. Ironically, happiness, according to the quote, is described as setting someone free and cutting the strings that link the two of you. Do you think we will be happy if we set things/people who we love SOOO MUCH  free and away from us?


However, it also helps us realize that if we will force them, there’s a greater chance that it will make them avoid us more as if  we have a disgusting communicable disease. Hence, we have no choice but to let them go and just wait for the right time they will return (if ever); if not, then that would mean we have to enjoy or focus on the other things we have in our life. For an instance, letting go of a gf/bf is such a heartbreaking thing, right? And so you’ll try your best to win them back, without knowing that it will force them to dodge more. SAD REALITY. But if you try yourself on focusing on other things like making a better you, with one step at a time, you will be able to move-on and guess what? Your ex might return if in case, you’re meant to be.

Another example is, getting what you really want like being accepted in the school you want to be in. If a situation never allows you, it might be a terrible experience, but, if you will wait for the right time, then a better school might offer you a chance  that would mean a better opportunity for you.

Ultimately, what I am trying to emphasize is that we never knew what the tide brings so never settle for less and open your eyes to some better views other than what you see because you can achieve happiness, if only, you will allow yourself to be happy and change your negative perception.
