The Perceived Value of Happiness

A fulfilled dream cannot hold onto its lasting joy, and an unfulfilled desire is not abiding despair – the perceived value of happiness proportionates with the progression to life. What is greatly valuable today ceases to exist tomorrow – living the present’s true potential and outgrowing a constant feeling of insufficiency?

Time is by virtue of which everything becomes nothingness in our hands and loses all real value  – Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Somewhat all our joys are entwined with our suffering in a more profound way. Depth and meaning come from overcoming suffering. One cannot know happiness without sadness, love without loneliness, beauty without ugliness, nor faith without doubt.
