Don’t chase happiness!

An old man lived in the village. He was one of the most unfortunate people in the world.<>

The whole village was tired of him; he was always gloomy, he constantly complained and was always in a bad mood.<>

The longer he lived, the more bile he was becoming and the more poisonous were his words.<>

People avoided him, because his misfortune became contagious.<>

It was even unnatural and insulting to be happy next to him.<>

He created the feeling of unhappiness in others.<>

But one day, when he turned eighty years old, an incredible thing happened. Instantly everyone started hearing the rumour:<>

“An Old Man is happy today, he doesn’t complain about anything, smiles, and even his face is freshened up.”<>

The whole village gathered together. The old man was asked:<>

Villager: What happened to you?<>

“Nothing special. Eighty years I’ve been chasing happiness, and it was useless.<>

And then I decided to live without happiness and just enjoy life.<>

That’s why I’m happy now.”<>

Moral of the story: Don’t chase happiness. Enjoy your life.<>
