Key to Happiness; Self Love
Imagine if there were a key to happiness; a cheat code to life, capable of bringing great joy to life. Over time, depression has risen within society and its age. Many are forgetting how to love themselves. Happiness, generally, has been fading because of this dilemma. Problems in life will diminish and will be easier to solve when one acts in loving their self; depression will become a theory, and a bittersweet memory.
Self loving is able to clear the mind, and makes it possible to focus on stable priorities in life; priorities that will only prove beneficial for focusing on them. Self love is important as it clears insecurities and creates more positive energy. With positive energy comes productivity, which also spreads happiness due to small achievements that accrue over time. Being in a better mood makes becoming approachable to friends and family less improbable, and also spreads joy to them as positive energies match. Without self love, negativity can be spread across connections in life, burning down the bridges of relationships; self love will do the opposite.
Priorities will be raised and problems will vanish when life in a whole is accepted as a concept and self love is acted upon. From personal experience, self love starts with appreciating the little things and little accomplishments. Focusing on problems all the time blocks these types of thoughts. Personally, when I stopped looking at my problems I have in life, I found myself. Happiness grows in self love and a clear mind and positivity are byproducts. Self love allows one to observe society from a peak, to think above society, and allows one to break free from the controlling, imprisoning mindset generated from society.
