Why It’s Hard To Recognize Unhappiness

You’d think recognizing your own emotions would be easy, but it’s not for many reasons. We often put other people’s emotions before our own, we get blinded by more dominant emotions, or we’ve just learned to ignore them.

It’s hard to recognize unhappiness because we’re trying so hard to be happy. To admit unhappiness is admitting that you failed at being happy. That your relationship is dead. That your job is a dud. That your life isn’t going the way you planned.

Because of this, many people live unhappy lives and they don’t know it. In this case, ignorance is bliss. But if you ever wriggle out of that unhappy situation, you’ll realize how much time you’ve wasted not being truly happy.

It’s hard to recognize unhappiness unless you are truly in tune with your self. If you actually take time to analyze your emotions and take time for self care.

Take a look at your life, write down the way you feel and recognize your happiness or unhappiness. It’ll help you in the long run.

  1. I really love this post, wasn’t able to read the whole thing yet, but I saw the part where you were talking about analyzing our emotions and deeply checking in with ourselves. That line right there is golden and such a profound and simple teaching. I will be coming back to read this whole thing, thank you so much for sharing.
