westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. happiness comes in moments. you dont “achieve” happiness. you experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. if you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. stop trying to be a “happy person.” just be a person.
Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.
and we won’t even get started on how women are socialized to accept hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scarring, skin discoloration and uneven texture on men even though those things are considered to be extremely unattractive on a woman.
Because it looks like, while men can have a mind and an opinion besides their looks, us women are only a pretty face. If so. Truly sad.
