——- says a very thought-provoking quote on tumblr one evening ——-
I believe in second chances, I promise. But I also believe that people are naturally selfish and that few of them actually deserve second chances.
I just don’t know how to calculate who does and who doesn’t. I just know that it’s a lost cause searching for happiness if you lost it at the hands of another person.
We can’t base our happiness in other people! They will inevitably let us down.
Don’t base your happiness in a place. Places change and can get destroyed by weather and people and machines and time.
Don’t try to find happiness in memories, because they are nothing more than just that, memories. They are happiness stuck in the past, recalled through photos and other time stamps. Memories aren’t the future.
The only place you can find happiness is in yourself. You can’t rely on anything else to provide a sustainable, constant source of gratification.
