Neither difficult circumstances nor problems take away the possibility of rejoicing in small things
Today, people are mostly under pressure to be happy. But paradoxically, the greater the pressure – people are more unhappy because they cannot meet social expectations of happiness. Philosophers believe that people should do meaningful things to live a good life and not things that make people happy. It is possible to have a meaningful, worthwhile and good life and yet be unhappy, suffer some losses and suffer. However, most people who have a life with meaning at the same time describe their life as a happy life. It is important to recognize a good segment of life and enjoy it until the next challenge. Austrian psychiatrist, neurologist, philosopher, author, and Holocaust survivor Victor Frankl wrote about “meaning therapy” as opposed to insisting on happiness. The more people are aware of the meaning of life regardless of hardships and occasional accidents then the happier they will be overall. The British philosopher Bertrand Russell gave a short answer to the question of human happiness: “It is necessary to transfer one’s own interests about one’s own being and happiness to something outside one’s own personality.” If people are dealing with destructive people, for example alcoholics, bullies then these people will program you to be dissatisfied. On the other hand, if a person associates with good, soft and sensitive people, then the inner world of that person will be richer and life will be better.
Every year begins with the hope that life will be better, fulfilled and of better quality. The problem is that people often think that such a life does not depend on them but on external factors. That is why every person should start by believing that they are not helpless in creating each new day.
1-All life actually takes place on that day, the past is the past and we don’t know the future. It should be considered that a person lives consciously in every day, without waiting for the future or in the boxes of the past.
2.Today’s day is here and now an opportunity to be beautiful and for people to live that moment. Each day can be divided into several activities, including a section dedicated to thinking about the past, past experiences and ideas (plans and thoughts) about further progress in the future.
3.Part of the day is enough for that, and the rest of the day can be other life activities. Psychiatrists say that awareness of precious life is important (it can be a job that fulfills someone, hobbies, hugs of loved ones, love, respect and the like). One should appreciate the happiness that everyday life gives. One should use the power of words and talk about the good side of every situation, about moments of happiness and fulfillment.
4.The manner of seeing only the bad side in everything is dangerous because the words we utter are part of people’s habits. If a person is prone only to words of criticism and resentment then those kinds of words can only be toxic and affect life. That’s how people live a “life of dissatisfaction” and it’s never good enough.
5.It is desirable to learn to recognize the point when something is good enough and enjoy until the next challenge. One should at least enjoy the achieved goals / results / moments of happiness for a while because otherwise there is no purpose.
The heavier man can be traced back to the last 5,500 years since the letter existed. That’s how long history lasts. All the achievements of the human race arose from the desire to improve the quality of life and prolong life. The desire for a better life is the driver of human intellectual development both in terms of species and in terms of the individual. In the Neolithic, for example, there was a period of 2000 years when there were no wars. Vinca culture flourished then. It is a time before literacy and before history. Perhaps the memory of this state gave rise to a utopian image of the “golden age of mankind.” Perhaps it is the seed of various later utopian projects. Modern history is full of sharp oscillations. Periods of prosperity alternate with world and local wars and which brought unprecedented destruction, misery and poverty. The one who is hit by it is happy to remember the previous periods of time, which over time take on the outlines of an ideal image. The 19th century is considered to have seen a century of relatively constant peace and development. But that only applies to Europe. On some continents, the indigenous population was then severely affected by Europeans. The Eurocentric image is a distorted image of the past. There is a phrase that people often repeat: that an individual cannot live well in the circumstances of general misfortune and evil. But history says that on the contrary, a powerful and rich individual can live well even in bad general circumstances, and even some of them live well thanks to general misfortune and evil. Another phrase that people often repeat is that “everything used to be better”. But it’s not quite like that. As a person gets older, then life becomes objectively harder, so he remembers youth as a better time. Young people project this better for the future. The present is not darker for anyone because, apart from some pleasure, it often brings only hardships and problems.
Today is an opportunity for everyone because the past is just the past and the future is equally uncertain for everyone.
