Take the Mask Off: Is the Perceived Lack of Happiness Robbing You of Real Happiness?


Do you often feel life has left you short?


That somehow you have been robbed of the right to be happy and content. Maybe you have financial or relationship issues in your life or you are facing chronic health problems.  


You look around and see happy faces everywhere you look and it can be easy to slip into a feeling that everyone but you is happy.


There is no one on this earth, no matter how rich, famous or successful who does not suffer moments where they feel that life has served them a difficult basket of trials to deal with.

The smiles on many people’s faces may be masks that are worn to cover up the internal pain. Other people wear smiles because they have learned to deal with their pain and problems and focus on the good and not the bad in their life.

 

There are very few people who feel that life is not difficult and sometimes, the circumstances they find themselves are difficult.
