but they have a shorter life span according to other studies. being unhappy equals being unhealthy. i don’t care they are better communicators while all they have to communicate is about their own misery. who wants a life like that? i was amazed by the readers’ comments – they say happy people are shallow and selfish, what a bull! happiness comes from acceptance of yourself and others, from inner peace, balance, and deep awareness. what a bunch of self-sufficient grumps, ewww! i am not saying we should be happy all the time at all cost – that would be unreasonable, but hey that’s what should we seek. wallowing in your own misery all the time doesn’t help anybody, not even yourself.

Jesus knows better!

“My peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 4:27)

“ Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21)
