Every time you say you’re busy, you’re actually saying that you can’t prioritize your life.
I believe that the purpose of life is not happiness, but usefulness. I like to make myself useful. To myself, family, friends, and community.
However, you must realize that happiness requires hard work for some folks. That’s why people who claim you should ‘stop trying to be happy’ are missing the point. They look at happiness from their own set level of happiness.
