Why You Should Stop Chasing Happiness and Let It Come to You

Do you pursue happiness instead of giving it the chance to find you? Many people imagine they need to seek joy, pounce on it, and hold it tightly. Realistically, though, you can’t hunt for happiness; it’s the result of positive thoughts and accepting the flow of life. Don’t chase a blissful existence, and you just might have one. Let’s look at why striving for happiness won’t make you happy.

Trying too hard thwarts your efforts

When you attempt to capture happiness, you’re forced to look at unhappiness. You have to conclude joy’s inadequate before you seek more. Once you recognize you lack bliss, the journey begins. You strap on your rifle and head into the wilds to bag your trophy.

You judge your thoughts and behavior, trying to get rid of negativity, but your prize is elusive. As you focus on obliterating challenges, the natural flow of life stops. You no longer observe incidents that support happiness, and you miss wonder and spontaneity.

Acceptance of life’s ups and downs makes you happier

No matter how hard you try to make every moment joyful, you won’t succeed. Life is full of contrasts, which means you will meet highs and lows. Embracing impermanence and unpredictability puts your mind at rest; you recognize you don’t need to waste energy trying to control events.

Once you accept you’ll sometimes be happy and at others sad, you won’t think the downs of life suggest failure. Instead, you can see adversity as normal, and even helpful if you delve deep. After all, challenges assist growth, and the wiser you are, the easier it is to be happy.

How positive thinking brings happiness

Happiness-seekers often reason positive thoughts must be uplifting. It’s helpful to focus on ideas that inspire, but positive thoughts aren’t always Pollyanna-like, they are constructive. When you face hard times, it won’t help to believe everything’s superb. Useful ideas, though, bring solutions, and improvements increase confidence.

Chasing happiness is like running after prey instead of waiting for it to appear. The more you hound your quarry, the faster it runs away. Sit tight, accept the natural rhythm of life, and aim to think constructively. Don’t try to find happiness, it will come to you.
