A human has no control over their likes and dislikes. People cannot make something better or worse than it is. Love is the same. One cannot help it if they love something. People or things can touch a person’s life, and they naturally grow to or learn to love it.
If you analyze these questions and reach the inevitable logical conclusion, you'll realize that the only thing preventing someone from being happy is nothing. Literally nothing. It's worthwhile to explore the subject and see where it leads to debunk some misconceptions about happiness. Obviously, people are not all the same, but everyone can agree that everything is secondary to how you genuinely feel about yourself. Because without the right mental framework to be happy with yourself, your life
The Socratic Paradox, for example, states that what one knows forms such a large part of them that it dictates their soul. He believed that true happiness could only be found by serving one’s true purpose and doing what is right. He stated that while we all seek good we fail to achieve it by ignorance or lack of knowledge on how to be good. Socrates was of the belief that no single person chooses to be evil or ignorant. Ignorance was a state he tried to thoroughly cure by gaining as much knowledge as possible through constant questioning.
Things don’t always work out the way we expect them but they do always happen for a reason. You cannot plan or schedule your life because nothing is fixed forever. Life is a journey and every single moment of our life is a process of learning. We need the journey and all these experiences in order to change and to become better. Krishna teaches himself, and the novel tries to teach us, to be grateful to life and death.
Patricia T. O?Conner wrote an interesting essay titled ?Saying is Believing.? In it, she tells us that a good writer is one that you can read without breaking a sweat.

They are all taught that what they do is for the good of all the people not just themselves. Even though some of them have worse jobs, they are just as important as the people highe...
He hated to fail. When faced with a challenge, as shown by the quote, he had to give it everything he had. However, because he held himself to such high standards, he would be overly disappointed when he did not completely meet his own standards, even if he exceeded everyone else’s. Because of this, Chris McCandless was never satisfied with his life. Almost everyone, including myself, has trouble accepting criticism, but Chris brought this to a whole new level.
It is the idea that once we strip ourselves from our ego or the idea of a real and fixated self, one may reach nirvana, which again, cannot be seen, but only experienced. However, here it is important to note a striking difference between Armstrong’s Being and Thurman’s Void: Being relates to an unseen force while void refers to a lifestyle and a mental state. More specifically, Thurman focuses on the idea of self-knowledge. For instance, Thurman claims that “because the only thing that’s frightened by the word ‘selflessness’ is the artificially constructed, unreal, and unrealistic self” (Thurman 441). This artificial self isn’t real, because it doesn’t really exist.
