Critical Thought #10: The Pursuit of Happiness

The Chu Effect

Happiness is having low or no expectations of other people. That
way, no matter what they say or do, you will be happy about it.

There is a lot of merit that is associated with this statement. At
first, someone may take this statement as being directed at them and
become offended. However, I see it as a coming from within vs
directing outward. The problem that people have regarding being
satisfied with their situation is that they build a high expectation
of it and things fall short. Whether it is the wedding day, putting on
an event, or accomplishments during the day, we expect more than will
actually come as a result. If we oliviate the expectations of others
and only reserve high expectations for ourselves, then we can find
happiness pretty easily. What woman has had a wedding day that completely met
all of their expectations, nothing went wrong, and they were totally satisfied with
the services they were provided? Were you completely happy? Or were your expectations so
high, you found it difficult to enjoy the moment? Do we have very high expectations in our relationships?
Are putting too much pressure on our partners or spouses? What do you think?
