On being unhappy

No one should ever ask themselves why they are feeling unhappy. The moment they ask themselves: Why am I unhappy?

The question carries within a virus that will destroy everything. If we ask that question it means we want to find out what makes us happy. If what makes us happy is different from what we have now, then we must either change once and for all or stay as we are, feeling even more unhappy.
