The Consequence of Not Pursuing Happiness

About 20 years ago, when I first started in Private Practice, I had a young man come to me who was so amazingly intelligent, bright, and alive with life.

After all, we have our families, we have our experiences, we have our schoolings, we have our memories…don’t all of these things together create, make, and define us as who we are?” All of these things definitely play a role in who we think we are right now, but the key phrase to remember is “who we think we are.” The truth is that who we think we are is in constant flux, changing all the time.

Posted on July 16th, by Dr. Puff in Articles. No Comments

Is there a specific ingredient that one must have in order to be happy? Is there something that, if we possess it, will cause us to be happy? If this is true, are there only certain people that can be happy? In other words, is happiness limited to only a select few? Let’s explore these questions.
