The Number of Happiness
Happiness is something many people asks to. There is so many cases where they ask to be happy. But actually what is happiness for you? Being able to eat your favorite food? Being able to come home earlier? Or for some people, happiness is when they got a lot of money and being rich. I believe we have a different meanings for happiness. But can we say that the third type of person who want to be rich are materialistic? Can we? But unfortunately, the answer is no. No, they are not materialistic they are just realistic. Let me tell you a secret, all the people in this world are almost same. We need numbers to be happy. Yes, we are. For a student when she gets a number as a good score in her exam she will be happy. Just imagine how if when we woke up someone just knocks our door and said “congratulations you won our door prize and this 10 billion dollar for you. But you don’t have to do anything. Just take it” what will you feel? Surprise? Shock? And of course happy. Let me remind you money and score is a number. Even if you said, “I just want to meet my family in other cities that’s happiness for me”. You or your family still need money to come. Nothing is free today. Even the food that you eats has to be paid. So am I wrong when I said “We Need a Numbers to be Happy” because that’s a fact?
In this modern era, we have a growing mind and being realistic. But sometime this gimmick makes you more stressed than before. We have so many cases when we or our friend didn’t get a good score in the exam they will feel sad. It’s different from our friends who get the best student mendal. They are the people who get the first rank and I’m sure they will feel really happy. But how if you don’t? It is normal to feel sad? Just because you are not the best? I will strongly say no. If you ask me why the answer is you can find another number for you. This world is not just about number 1 and 0. You can find number 2, 3, 4, 5, even a billion if you want it. Because you have the same right with them. You are free to choose what you gonna do, what you want, even what you love for. There so many numbers you can pick. So don’t be depressed if you fail in one number. You still have a billion to choose. This number of happiness, we can’t afford it anymore. But please remember this world is not just about number 1 and 0 do not ever feel useless because are not the best in that subject, you just need to find the other number and keep trying. Appreciate yourself more. Because this life are more than just a number
