Is there a right time to find happiness?

Is there a right time to find happiness?

The search for happiness is a universal search. It’s a search that everyone, everywhere is involved in somehow. No matter what stage of your life you are at now, being happy is likely high on your list even if you haven’t really given it much conscious thought. At the same time, you might be wondering if this is the right time for you to find your happiness.

This may be especially true if you are someone who has spent their entire life making considerations for other people. You’re the one everyone goes to and you’re the one who is willing to listen and are genuinely concerned for those around you and their emotional and psychological plight.

It’s likely you’ve spent so many years prioritising other people and their needs that you’ve brushed aside your own needs for another day. You’ve probably thought it wasn’t the right time or others needed you more, or it’s simply too selfish to start looking into your own happiness.

People who put aside their happiness and needs are likely to continue to do so; and even when they do look into it, may end up feeling guilty. By this point, it even becomes an excuse that it isn’t the right time. Maybe the excuse developed as a means to lessen the guilt or unease with feeling a little bit selfish as that is often considered to be negative.

For many, the right time may never come, and maybe you even feel the same way but that doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t want to find happiness. You just haven’t found the excuse you needed to pursue it. Regardless, finding happiness is something fundamental. Without it, you’re really just going through the motions in life, and it’s not giving anything back to you, nor are you really getting anything out of it.

Taking care of your needs is essential to ensuring you stay healthy, and the happier you are, the more stable and more adjusted you will feel. Finding your happiness will give your actions meaning. This may mean you are a bit selfish while you take time out for yourself to figure things out. It may even cost you something while you explore your needs, and different paths you may want to travel towards finding your happiness. When you do, you’ll be a better person for it, and everyone you’re helping will benefit. Maybe the time isn’t right, but you probably should take the time to find your happiness any way. You deserve it.
