Learning How to Be Happy



Does this describe you?

  • Your life’s a mess
  • Your struggling with relationships in your family and friends
  • There are too many stresses at work
  • The Bahá’í community asks more of you than you can give and there’s no time to relax.
  • You feel like a victim of the relentless number of tests and difficulties sent your way.
  • You’re bogged down and burdened with sorrow.
  • You feel impotent and powerless.
  • You pray and read the Bahá’í Writings but God feels farther away than ever.
  • You know you should be happy but you feel miserable.
  • You want to be happy but you don’t know how.
  • You wonder what’s wrong with you, that despite having access to this amazing prescription for living, you still aren’t happy.
  • You ask yourself: What’s wrong with me?  Do I not have what it takes?  Am I a bad Bahá’í?

‘Abdu’l-Bahá asks us:

If we are not happy and joyous at this season, for what other season shall we wait and for what other time shall we look?  (Abdu’l-Bahá, Baha’i World Faith, p. 351)

But how do we become happy when our lives have been so miserable?

I understand!

I’ve been there before!

You’re not alone!

We all have circumstances in our lives that leave us feeling disappointed, helpless, hopeless and in despair.  It’s at those times we need help to see that there are always choices we can make.

I spent most of my life wanting to be happy.  Whenever I feel weighed down by life, whenever I feel all the pains and trials of the world weighing on my shoulders, I want to hide under the covers, cuddle with my cats, eat chocolate, turn off the phone and hide from the world.

Six years ago I realized that life is too short to indulge in self-pity, and I begged God for a solution.  I promised that if there was light at the end of the tunnel, I would share the light with others, and show them the way.  He showed me a way that’s worked for me and I am grateful!

Now, whenever I find myself slipping back into depression, I use a few simple steps to realign with my purpose, feel happy and joyful again, and move into action. These teachings have changed my life, and I know that they can help you too.
