So to all of you reading this out there, I have a question. You see, today I was having a conversation with someone and the beliefs of some certain books came up. It’s the mindset that what you’re thinking is holding you back from being happy, and that despite your circumstances, you can make your happiness come from within. Now I’m not saying that happiness can’t come from within, because it surely can. What I’m asking though is, “could these methods work in really hard circumstances?”. Like I know there might be some super optimistic, glass half full people, that no matter what happens to them, they’re cheery. But what do you think? And have you ever read any of these books about the key to happiness and all that? If so, did they work?
