You want to be happy, but we are all wired to notice threats and fears, in fact probably up to 70% of your thoughts are negative every day.
And we all make the mistake of buying into popular happiness myths.
Thinking that happiness is our natural state. That if we have food, water, shelter and loving relationships then we will naturally be happy.
That if you are not happy then you are defective and need to be medicated.
And that we should just think ourselves happy and be able to control our thoughts and feelings.
If only it was that easy.
