Happiness is a funny thing. Because we all want to be happy, but we don’t know exactly how to get there.
Happiness has many paths, many theories, & many gurus propagating it. Sometimes we need a different dose that works for different people.
However, there is 1 common ingredient that is needed which works for all. That is to reduce expectation. The less expectations, the more the happiness. When you are not at the mercy of receiving from others either emotionally, physically, or financially from others, then you reach a greater state of self-reliance & independence. In a state of people independence, you experience greater freedom, greater joy, greater happiness. Independence from humans, but dependence on God could be the happiness mantra of your life.
Happiness is inversely proportional to expectations !
