Recently I was asked a very unexpected question. “Anna, are you a happy person? Because we think that not”. Because we think that not…After this phrase I was thinking where and when I made people to understand that I am unhappy. And actually I have never made a situation this way. Because I am not an unhappy person. And I think that I have never been.
Actually I have never thought if I am a happy person. May be this is because I don’t want to speak about it, or there was no occasion to do so. But after I received that question I really had a time to answer it just for myself, at first. And now I want to post my view on that topic.
For every person happiness – is a set of specific components. Mainly they are always the same, but are made in the different order. For me these special components always were: my dearest friends that are always here with me no matter what and how; my family who always happy for me, who always supports me and understands; my man whom I love and who loves me back and always by my side; ability to do things I love which keeps me motivated and inspired; a stable financial component; a strong health; the ability to feel the freedom and live deeply breathing.
Yes I always had the ability to talk to people and my communications skills always were high and when I was in an absolutely new company I could make good relations with people quite fast. And I always had and have friends with whom I am the real me and because of that I can call myself a happy person. Actually the same thing I can tell about my family, and I am talking not about my mom and dad, but about the Family with a capital letter. My family for me is the biggest standard of the ideal family, and I love all our meetings that give me so many positive emotions and I think that in this kind of family you simply can not be unhappy. And I always had many hobbies and I always could find things that I would love, like drawing classes that I did when I was a kid, tennis lessons, singing and guitar classes (I still sing, but guitar remained a dream instrument); let’s remember the cosplay period that gave me so much fun and helped me understand that, hey, I am good in sewing too; and when I created a blog I got myself in the brand new level – I became more self-confident and understood what it is to love yourself with all your disadvantages. And isn’t it happiness? Yeap, my health was quite strong too and I could and still can live deeply breathing.
Actually, not all the components made me happy. I had not a big luck in love things, especially in my school years: in the first high classes, when all my friends and classmates had relationships, the best thing for me was to find not a very nice guy, and the worst – find no one. Of course it made me upset but actually I was not very disappointed: I had many other things in my life that made me a complete person. The same thing was with a financial component: it was and is very unstable. But I am working on it and everything will be alright soon.
So, after this wide analysis I can say that I am mainly a happy person, than an unhappy. Yes, of course, something in my life could be different. But who said that different means better? And quite always people really forget about it. Relax, take a breath, make the analysis just for yourself and answer: are you a happy person?
