Pur­suit of Un­hap­pi­ness

India Today - - NET FLUX -

Au­thor Au­gusten Bur­roughs wrote about the up­side of be­ing down­beat in the ar­ti­cle How to Live Un­hap­pily Ever Af­ter in The Wall Street Jour­nal. The writer men­tioned that be­cause one is not happy all the time doesn’t mean that there is some­thing wrong with one’s life. He wrote that the word ‘ heal’ is a tele­vi­sion word.“... you don’t need to heal to be whole. And by whole, I mean dam­aged, miss­ing pieces of who you were, your heart— miss­ing what feels like some of your most im­por­tant parts. And yet, not miss­ing any part of you at all. Be­ing, in truth, larger than you were be­fore.”
