misfortune and happiness
We are never
as bad off or as happy as
we say we are.”
~ Honore De Balzac
Why exaggerate ? ? ?
Why not just be content with the middle of the road.
No one ever believes your laments of melancholy misery
or your over emoted spasms of ecstatic exuberance
Yes, we do those things to elicit sympathy or
to have other people leave us alone.
Today, be happy, don’t exaggerate,
tell the truth about how you feel.
Happiness is never having to exaggerate.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
