Righteousness vs. Happiness

Do You Want to Be Right or Do You Want to Be Happy:

A Dream of Anger vs. Life of Happiness?

I had a dream. In my dream, I was in the midst of a grossly unfair situation that nobody around me seemed to care about. I felt it was my duty to set things right and I was just working myself into a fit of indignation when I woke up. My first thought was – “oh, no no! I’ve not finished yet. I have to go back in”.

In that fuzzy state between sleep and wakefulness, I remember vaguely trying to put myself back to sleep. I felt cheated that I woke up before I had the chance to mete out justice and set things straight.

I guess, I still continue to choose right over happy… πŸ˜€

    We want to be heard and understood. It’s so frustrating to feel misunderstood. Big Hugs, and thank you. πŸ‘β™₯️

      I’ve been working on finding my voice in the past several years and your insightful comment just placed everything in perspective. Once I find my voice in constructive pursuits, I will be able to let go of the frustration. We can’t really fight anger with anger, right? πŸ™‚
      Thank you! Tatiana

    There’s yin and yang in most situations, right? Unfortunately, most information is presented without disclosing it’s bias and giving only part of the story. I believe it was Hawkes who said that it’s impossible not to have a viewpoint.

    Awareness that there is a choice is the first step toward change. Good for you!πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™
