Writer’s Workshop: Not Happy Enough

beach at sunset

I was worried, “She’s not happy enough, she seems sad and anxious too often, I don’t know how to help.

A smart lady stopped me, “In this country, we peddle happiness like it’s a tangible good.

Buy this car, take this vacation, everything will be amazing if you do x,y, and z.

Happiness is a feeling, it’s not something you can go out and buy.

We need to relieve ourselves from the pressure of needing to be happy all the time.

Keep showing her you are here for her, she sees it.”

And so I try.


Now it’s your turn!
