What is happiness? How does one really know when the point of happiness has been reached? How does one reach that point? Well, there are a million ways of questioning happiness. As little kids, we are told accomplishments, goals can bring us happiness. Yet, we were never told how to reach emotional happiness and so we turn to books, movies and friends. Very young we associate love with happiness so we tend to start looking for love in all the wrong places and in all of the worst types of people. As a girl, love is just scarce but we always believed that every guy was our knight in shining armor until we are left with a kid in our arms by the guy who promised us forever. Although, some of us are lucky enough to realize the truth staring at our broken hearts we tend to forget to thank God for allowing us to understand that love is not all that its made up to be. We are told that Cinderella’s story will happen for us and so we sit and wait instead of working and praying. For this reason, our lives will never amount to all that it was supposed to, and for that same reason we will always have broken hearts. But some of us are fortunate enough to find that one person who can mend our hearts, our wounds, wipe our tears and is patient enough to hold our hand and walk with us although we are imperfect. That person is sometimes the one we treat faultily, the one we ignore and do all sorts of things to and yet they are still around. Although the idea of happiness is a good one and we spend most of our lives chaisng it if it did not come from the right source it will never last.
