Contentment: Lack of it equals lack of joy By Rossy

20 Jul

Contentment means that even when you are aiming for something better, you are satisfied with what you have. You do not do what you shouldn’t because you want to live large. This beautiful piece is by Rossy;

Contentment is a state of happiness and satisfaction

When you are satisfied, it helps you to find peace and happiness in our life and relationships. Contentment is not a matter of being okay with your situation in life and never trying to improve it. It’s a matter of being content with what you have whilst working towards progress. You need to be satisfied with what you have and who you are. If you are not satisfied with what you have, you will always be unhappy with yourself. That’s where the problem starts because if you are not careful, depression sets in.

Always remember, we choose whether we are happy or unhappy

Stop making yourself wish you are this or that, focus to be better on yourself while being satisfied with what you have. Most times, we start thinking why am I not able to talk like this person, why don’t I have the perfect shape, why are my fingers and hands so short and a lot of irrelevant things. Just because you are not satisfied with what you have, you start losing hope in yourselves and also start to have low self esteem. Just because we don’t know how to appreciate and get satisfied with what you have.

In our relationships, we do this a lot by comparing too. Why is my relationship not perfect like this other person’s own? You don’t have the full picture of what is going on in their lives. When you are not satisfied with your own relationship, jealousy, hatred comes in and you are bitter with yourself and everybody around you, just because you’re not satisfied with what you have.
I am not saying you shouldn’t’ wish for something good but all I am saying is be satisfied with what you have so that you can be happy with yourself.
