A lot of people paint themselves into a corner because they view everything as black or white, good or bad, right or wrong. When you see things this way you only have two options instead of many. Your world becomes a black and white TV instead of a color one and you limit your ability to find multifaceted, nuanced, fulfilling happiness.
It’s much easier to be happy when you open yourself up to multiple choices. There are many different solutions to the challenges that arise in life. Why not take the time to brainstorm and develop more than two? The more options you have, the happier and more well-rounded you’ll be.
It may seem confusing or overwhelming to have more than two choices, but the human brain is amazing at being able to select among many options. Give yourself a chance to explore all the amazing ideas available to you. Happiness is about increasing your opportunities by being open to all kinds of emotions, thoughts, and experiences.
