We all live our lives, placing our happiness on diverse objects, sometimes on people, and sometimes on priorities.
我們都過著自己的生活,有各種各樣的事物讓我們感到幸福,比如某些人或者某些物品。

But the question is, what do we do, when they are all gone?
但問題是,如果這些讓我們感到幸福的東西都消失了,我們該怎么辦?

We fail to realize that our happiness is an inward thing, and that it should be created from the inside of us.
我們尚未意識到的是,幸福是一種源自內心的感受,應該從我們的心靈內部誕生。

A lot of us have gone heartbroken on several occasions because our sources of happiness are gone from us.
許多人曾有過傷心失望的經歷,因為他們獲得幸福的源泉消失了。

Happiness would never seize from you, when you place it on the 'self' factor, and when all you see in the picture is nobody and nothing else but your own self.
如果你能將幸福的源泉置于“自我”之中,如果你能在尋找幸福之地只看到自己,再無他人他物,那么,誰也不能再把你的幸福搶走。

Someone once asked me, don't you ever get angry?
曾有人問我,你從來不會憤怒嗎?

I smiled and replied; where will the anger come from... The reason being; I've permanently succeeded in blocking all the possible chances for anyone or anything to make me feel bad.
我微笑答道:怒氣從何而來呢?其中的奧妙在于,對任何可能使我心情變差的人或物,我總能成功的把他們阻隔在自己的心靈之外,不讓它們有任何可乘之機。

When you create a inward happiness source, you're creating an inward security against pain, sorrow, or tears of all sort.
當你在自己的內心發掘到了幸福的源泉,你就擁有了一道內在的屏障,保護你免受痛苦、憂傷、淚水等等的侵擾。

Most times, the misplacement of your happiness source can lead to real life issues that might even end up killing you.
大多數時候,如果你尋找幸福的源頭是在歧途之中,就會導致許多現實中的問題,最終甚至會將你至于死地。

've met a lot people who got depressed, who incubated low self-esteem because they misplaced their sources of happiness.
我遇到過很多人,他們深陷抑郁,自卑自輕,就因為他們尋找幸福的地方是錯誤的。

To create happiness from your inside, you must learn to always love yourself, give credit to yourself when necessary, before anyone gets to criticizes you, be your number one critic, smile off negativity and always remind yourself that you are your number one happiness.
想要從你的內心獲得幸福,你必須學會愛自己,需要的時候給自己信心,在任何人指責你之前,做第一個評判自己得失的人。用微笑掃光一些負能量,時刻提醒自己,你就是你自己最大的幸福。
