Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Wellness is a choice. Healing is a choice. Wholeness is a choice.
All these things are just sitting on a shelf in the Emotion Superstore, one aisle over from depression, pessimism, anguish, brokenness, sickness, grief and suffering!
The people who are struggling are just too lazy to move a few feet to choose the good stuff instead of the bad. They don’t want to do the work it takes to choose the proper items. Man, I’m glad I’m a diligent go-getter.
Or maybe they’re ignorant. They wander the aisles, up and down, and can’t read the labels on the boxes because they’re illiterate. Why don’t they learn to read? It’s so easy! I’m glad I learned how to read a long time ago.
But most likely, they WANT the bad stuff. They like how it tastes as it’s ingested; they prefer the sugary sweetness of despair that rots their bones instead of the wholesome taste of joy that makes them grow strong. I’m glad I grew up on nutritious emotions and can tell the difference.
It must give them a lot of satisfaction, choosing all those bad items. They must love all the attention it gets them from all the people like them. Otherwise, why would they do it? There’s literally no good reason they would choose to feel terrible rather than excellent, like we do.
Thank god we’re not like them! That would suck. It sure is good that we know better. Now that I think of it, we just are better. And that’s the way we’re going to stay.
