And do you agree?
To me, and I may have this wrong, it suggests you can just tell yourself 'be happy' and then, as if a magic switch has been pressed, you're happy.
Or, in a more general way, you should choose to do what makes you happy? If you know something will make you miserable but you do it, you should just accept your misery as being your own fault?
What do you think?
Also I didn't really know where to post this so apologies if it is in the wrong forum
I kinda agree with the 'If you want to be happy, then be'
I think sometimes people stop themselves from being happy, because they're too negative about things, and I (personally) think to be happy you have to want to be happy, and have a positive outlook on life. I know that If I was to think about it, I could come with lots of reasons why I might not be happy, but I (personally) don't dwell on them too much, and I fill my mind with the positive/happy things and focus on them.
It means what life would be like if you went to eton
IT means you've got to put in the work to find your happiness and not expect it to happen for you.
Synthetic happiness is actually real happiness. So what being in charge of your own happiness means, is that instead of searching for happiness, and doing what makes you happy, choose to be happy and you'll be happy. For example, if you're upset, force yourself to be happy, smile, and soon, you'll realise you're actually happier! So no point going to the ends of the world searching high and low for happiness, it's within you, and you and only you have the power to release it.
You are in charge of your own happiness.
I kinda agree with all that's been said, you're in charge of your own happiness, so, create it and stop waiting for someone to make you happy. If you are married, make yourself happy, instead of waiting for your spouse to do that.
