The Happiness Factor (And Other Such Bullshit)

A quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

The purpose of life is not to be happy.  It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

Wow- such a stark contrast to my dipshit soon to be ex sister-in-law, my lying, cheating husband and the rest of his worthless family.  Quick disclaimer:  They’re not all worthless.  The ones he spends most of his time with, though… yeah, total lost cause. Their motto is:  Whatever makes you happy.  Or better still:  If you have to choose between what is right and what makes you happy, always go with being happy.  Who cares how many people you step on to get your happiness?  Who cares how many people you hurt, destroy, discard, disappoint?  If it makes you happy then it is always ok.  Don’t you worry about shattered lives.  Don’t worry about your kids.  Just focus on YOU!

Fuck all of you!
