#Happiness

The person you marry is the person you fight with.
The house you buy is the house you repair.
The dream job you take is the job you stress over.

Everything comes with an inherent sacrifice—whatever makes us feel good will also inevitably make us feel bad.  What we gain is also what we lose.  What creates our positive experiences will define our negative experiences.  This is a difficult pill to swallow.

We like the idea that there’s some form of ultimate happiness that can be attained.  We like the idea that we can alleviate all of our suffering permanently.

We like the idea that we can feel fulfilled and satisfied with our lives forever.

But we cannot.
