There’s so many times where we focus on what society tells us will make us happy, and that’s all we chase. Money, a nice car, a house, and material objects that show off our “success”.
We always end up overlooking ourselves. You avoid exercising until the doctor says you have to. I’m sure you’ve experienced it plenty. You ignore your stress at work until you just can’t take it anymore.
Ultimately your emotional state should take a priority. Without it, you can’t be at your best. At the end of the day, happiness is an emotion. All of the material items in the world can’t get you there.
