It takes courage to face our own lies. Before you leave this page, read on because there are a lot of lies out there surrounding what will lead us to happiness. For example, here are real common lies I hear in therapy all the time:
-“If I lose weight I will be happy”…and then people lose the weight and find themselves in the same mind.
-“If I get this raise I will be happy”…and the raise comes and next year they want another.
-“If I buy this ____, I will be happy”…and the thing is bought and lives are the same or they want the next thing.
Maybe you don’t have these lies in your head, but other ones. The challenge is to catch these lies this week. The truth is, you don’t have to wait for anything to find happiness. Perhaps you can start finding happiness the moment you catch these lies and instead accept where you are at or find some joy in the moment. The choice is yours. 🙂
