If It Makes You Happy

Why do we put such a high premium on happiness?

You often hear people say, "As long as you're happy..."

But being happy does not necessarily mean you are doing the right thing.

Happiness does not normally equate to righteousness.

Take Raft3r for instance.

He is always happy but never right.

I always believed that "real" happiness is something we achieve by doing the right thing.

Real happiness, the type that lasts, is meaningful and all consuming. But then again, that's just me =)

Wendy said...

So when Sheryl Crow sang "if it makes u happy, then why the hell are u so sad", she didn't really mean genuinely happy but happy in the context of being right. Kaya pala! Hmmmm. Nakakalungkot naman.

Jerick said...

you may be happy but that happiness might be short-sighted. i believe that what's right will make a person happy on a long-term basis.
