The End of Happiness – Finding Your True Happiness
The end of happiness is not what most people would like to think or accept as fact. It doesn’t exist. What does exist is the perception of happiness which may not exist. Here is my belief on what is the best definition of happiness:
Happiness is the absence of sadness, pain or sorrow. When a person feel truly happy, the brain releases feel-good hormones such as endorphins. This leads to a rush of serotonin through the brain. This is your ‘pleasure’ neurotransmitter which gives a feeling of well-being. Serotonin and endorphin are very important for regulating mood, sleep, appetite and the immune system.
The end of happiness is reaching the state of being at one with ourselves. We realize that we are a separate individual from others and we come into a more complete sense of who we are. This is the state of mind we achieve when we fully understand who we are and accept and love ourselves. It is not about striving to be more than someone else or becoming more successful than an average person. It is rather realizing the dream we all have of being our best.
