Displeasing Happiness

Can someone be happy while suffering?



I think so. It's a matter of knowing the rightness of your act- accepting a painful circumstance because it makes you and the world around you better, and even though it hurts, you're happy. Because it's just so smart. Because you're on the right path.



It's the "Oh shit" of having to rise above your weakness, and the joy that comes from it.

I'm not sure I can explain this well.
  • Yes, one can be happy while suffering. It's exquisitely beautiful, cleansing, transformative, catalytic.

  • Naaah. It makes sense. However, deliberately putting oneself in a state of suffering to achieve a state of happiness is stupid, wasteful, and ultimately destructive.

    Well, unless you're a masochist. . . . But then, we don't really qualify it as a state of "suffering."

    Then again, there's always Trent Reznor. . . .
  • You explained it well enough. I get the general idea.
