And somewhere, you know that someone is dying for all the wrong reasons.
And so many people are so busy looking, that they forget how to see.
All that anybody ever wants from this life is to be happy. There's no question there. What makes them happy can be completely different, but that's the single goal that everybody has in mind. Faith to your Religion is what does it for some, for others it's children and others yet it's the nicest car. It's a beautiful thing, to achieve happiness, no doubt about it. There is, however, one minor catch to this whole thing...
The fact of the matter is, people are interested in their own happiness, and they are not too terribly interested in yours.
And the more you think about that, the bigger a catch it turns out to be. Take our lovely President as an exaple of this. I can assure you that he's not going balls-out for the Oil drilling in Alaska because that's the most efficient way to get energy for our Country. It's actually not a very efficient way, nor was it one of the easier to implement, nor is it environmentally friendly, ect, ect. And the President didn't do this because he's an evil person, he did it because he's human. Flat out, he makes money from the Oil Industry. That is how he made all his money. And, bottom line, drilling for Oil is one of the worst ways to get the U.S. the energy it needs, but it's one of the best ways to line his pockets.
Now, Bush didn't do this because he's a dumbfuck or a jackass, though I like to call him both, because he pisses me off for doing the drilling. Bottom line is, he wants to be happy. Money can't buy happiness directly, but it can buy time. Now, how many of you want to work 40 hours a week until you're 67? *notices a complete lack of hands* Oh, gee, HOW surprising! =P
The majority of people would have done the same, were they in Bush's position.
History has taught nothing if not that people will strive for what makes them happy, and will do whatever it takes despite whom/what it may hurt.
And that, my friends, is a fact.
So what makes you happy? I bet that if you look deep down and think about it, the majority of you will find that you have hurt somebody or something either physically or emotionally for your own happiness, whether or not it was the right thing to do.
Bur, really, I'm curious as to what makes you happy...
