Why don’t more people practice happiness?

3 years, 2 months ago

I don’t like this discussion. Normally I wouldn’t post in a discussion i didn’t like. Still this time I thought I should.

First thing i’d like to say is that when we are talking about emotions there are no contradictions. All of us are just trying to explain how we feel, and we are trying to explain which feelings we like a lot, and which feelings we don’t like so much. We do this by using language. Language is governed by logic, and this is what leads to all the confusion going on here. Emotions are not logical. Some of us use happiness to describe how we feel and some of us use joy to describe maybe the same feeling, that doesn’t make one right and the other wrong. This is just an example, but what I’m saying is that we are only doing our best to express what’s going on inside, and when we choose words to do so people get confused and use logic to correct us, but when a painter expresses his/her emotions no one says: "hey your contradicting yourself" or "your wrong" and that’s exactly what’s going on here.

@stonedragon, loved your post
@blair, people do what they want, and happiness is their first priority, they just achieve it in a different way.
@manimal, just because people practice happiness in different way doesn’t make it a shitty way. But we are all entitled to our own opinion.
