According to science, happiness is caused by chemicals in our brain called dopamine and serotonin. Things like sex, laughter, or chocolates can trigger our brains to release these chemicals, causing our level of happiness to go up. If happiness is this easy to achieve, why does man have to chase happiness his whole life?
I’ve lived for almost 18 years and there’s one thing I am very certain of: every person’s goal in life is to be happy. We don’t study hard to get a diploma, we study hard to be happy after getting our diplomas. We work hard to be happy after finally getting our dream house. Everything we do, though unconsciously, we do for our happiness. But after that, what? Can we maintain the happiness we so hardly worked for?
Apparently, not. The happiness of getting a diploma or a new house can last for days, even weeks. But it could never last forever. What to do? Are we not dreaming to be forever happy? Are we always going to lose the happiness we sought for and chase it again, just to lose it many more times? Will our life be forever like that, just a pursuit of happiness, never a life of happiness?
Is happiness just a metaphor created for dreamers? Is it just a surge of dopamine and serotonin? Or is it more than that?
Stop liking him. It’s ridiculously not right. Pffft.
