Sometimes we get scared of happiness because happiness is the unknown. We say we want it, we say we crave it, but we don’t do anything to achieve it or if we do, we sabotage ourselves on the last minute. Because sometimes we think there’s no way out, there’s no other way, and we can’t change. Because changing is painful too, even if you’re changing for the better. Getting out of your comfort-zone is one of the scariest things one can do. So we don’t.
Sometimes happiness is one belief away. One little thought or mindset shift. Sometimes all we have to do is trust what our souls have been screaming at us. Sometimes we leap, hoping we will fly. Sometimes we fall, knowing we will rise. Sometimes happiness is just a lot of faith.
