We all speak about happiness. Because we all want it. And we’re perennially looking for it – high and low.
And it’s relative too. What does that mean? Queen Elizabeth played by a brilliant Claire Foy in The Crown shares her take on… unhappiness, not happiness.
And what a lovely line it is.
That's the thing about unhappiness. All it takes is for something worse to come along and you realize what you were experiencing was actually happiness after all.
Much like man’s search for heaven up there in the skies. When he dies here on earth and goes up, God asks him, “So, how did you like your stay on heaven?”
We already have everything, if we choose to look within. If we stubbornly look outside only, constantly comparing and recognizing apparent gaps and holes, then we will be left with nothing. Years later, maybe we will realize that that state too was actually happiness – but it may be too late to realize it.
