“Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.” ― Charlotte Brontë
A recent string of incidents has got me seriously thinking about this quote. I was a firm believer of this quote and wouldn’t mind sharing my happiness with most of my friends.Well, it certainly is such a beautiful thing to do. My husband on the contrary believes in sharing good news with just a select few.( I found it weird initially but now his thinking is beginning to make a lot of sense to me. )
Well now, what is the right thing to do ? What is the best way to share across your happiness. Sometimes I see people put across joyous news on Facebook for the whole world to see, whereas some remain a silent spectator. Let me explain each point of view :
People who do not believe in sharing : People with this attitude believe that they are inviting misfortune or what is called “Evil Eye ” on their share of happiness, when they share news with everyone. They believe that not all people will be genuinely happy for you. There are a couple of people out their who are not as fortunate as you and when they see other people doing better than them, they tend to bring out a lot of resentment and negativity. And to some point I am beginning to realize that this may be true if you have people who are “Happiness Suckers” because yes recently I have come across some sad few.
People who love sharing their joy : People with this attitude care a damn , and go ahead and fearlessly share their joy. Reason being they believe that they have people who genuinely care and are happy for them and they have hardly experienced people jinxing their happiness so why not share 🙂 These are some lucky people I believe .
Watch out for “Happiness Suckers”, they come disguised as well wishers but cant fool you long 🙂 I believed they just existed on TV but I was wrong they exist in real life too, so be wary.
What do you think about this ? what do u do ?
