Just as with any task I have, I'll search for happiness then even if I find it somewhere I loose the interest (not in being happy, rather in a specific source of happiness), motivation goes away and give up.
When I have a wife the feeling is of purpose beyond myself, I already have happiness by my side so the "work" to achieve it disappears and I'm left with the best hobby in the world, finding ways for me and my partner to have extra fun.
Just to think about going my whole life working to make me happy sounds like too much, like I'm aiming at a moving target I need to hit constantly and "forever".
- Have you or do you feel like this?
- Have you got tired of having to find happiness over and over?
- Do you feel motivate in taking things to the end just for yourself alone?
