Lesson 10 from The Hard Knocks School of Life

In order to be happy you will have to lower your expectations. If you expect people to make you happy or things to make you happy you won’t be happy because your expectations will keep you from being happy.
I think that learning to accept that there will be much misery in my life that is neither my fault nor within my ability to do more than limit the pain I have been caused was one of the most difficult lessons I ever had to learn. When I stopped being miserable and feeling like I was the only person with a miserable life I began to look for what I could find joy in. In all I must say that fun has very little to do with joy or happiness.
