One of my friend shared with me that she love to have daily surprises from family members, friends and others. To her, it’s the best source of happiness. She tie-up her “happiness” with the “surprises” from others. Usually, her expectation is material gifts. I am compassion when I heard about her sharing.
Why are we putting “conditions” for happiness?
Why are we need to seek external stuffs to make ourselves happy?
Think about it, we set-up expectation even towards the “surprises”. It’s a big pressure for her family and friends as they need to spend so much time to give “surprises” to cheer her up. Moreover, the person who suffered the most, definitely is my friend as she never enjoy the unconditional happiness.
When we rely on external stuffs, the moment of happiness is so short and it can’t last at all. You expect more and more, instead of bringing happiness, you are inviting suffering in your life.
Love yourself by live freely and enjoy unconditional happiness in every moment of life!
