Socrates school of philosophy
No one could possibly be happy if they acted against their better judgment. And he who knows how to achieve happiness will do so. Therefor, he who knows what is right will do right. Because why would anyone chose to be unhappy?
My philosophical brain went on a huge brainstorming session after reading some of the old Socrates quotes and one Greek Philosopher book I did a project on in my school. I kept googling and jumped right back in Socrates’s school of philosophy. When I did come out I was amazed with this little pearl of wisdom. I couldn’t agree more. Socrates does have a point. Why would anyone chose to do what isn’t right? Why would someone chose to be unhappy?
Unhappiness is a choice just like happiness.
God I was better kid then this weird grown up I have become. As kid I never used to stay sad over the same thing for more than a few hours and now, let’s just say I gave sadness its chance with me, we did become good buddies but then my senses kicked in and I had to say goodbye for the time being. Why choosing happiness is such a big chore? Maybe because we analyse too much and accept too little. Well will talk about that some other day. What you think, happiness over unhappiness?
Which reminds me, I saw the movie Inside Out after much bugging from my boyfriend and I thought the movie had some really good points. Sadness is equally important in life as happiness. You can’t know what being lucky is until you have been unlucky or what is happiness until you have been sad etc. Well, I don’t think being always happy is possible but smiling though your problems and learning to move on, is highly possible.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ~ MKG Aka Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Socrates was born ages ago but his philosophy and wisdom is ageless. (You can read his Wiki Page if you are curious and then go dig his books. Although philosophy is not everyone’s cup of tea, there’s always something to enjoy when you read it.)
Have fun. 🙂 See ya.
