Why happiness eludes you?
You know the reason.
You know that ‘Happiness’ is sold as a commodity.
And you are busy chasing or purchasing that ‘happiness’ which is evaporating fast.
My friend the problem with you is that you started analyzing happiness instead of experiencing it.
You should know that happiness is a positive feeling in the form of contentment.
Always you have a tendency to wait for that eluding happiness, instead of living in the present.
What is your definition of happiness?
“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be” Abraham Lincoln
Two important things come to my mind.
Either you are envious of others ( because of comparisons) or you forgot the meaning of contentment.
Still, you never attempt to correct yourself.
Besides, you are confused because of the past, present, and future.
“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see
The past better than it was
The present worse than it is, and
The future less resolved than it will be”
You alone have the key to your happiness.
