Happiness is earned. It’s earned through experience; the good, the bad, the ugly. The ugliest experiences contribute the greatest to our happiness. Divorce. Depression. Death. Things that nearly break us, almost kill us, fuel our happiness; make us great. Humans are meant to be challenged; tested; pushed. We are meant to break our limits; innovate; adapt; overcome. Without the nearly fatal, we never truly live.
We need the ugly moments; the moments of despair; the hard stuff.
