- Is this a goal you hold in life? Are you working towards that goal? Or has your true happiness taken a back seat to other pursuits or circumstances? Do you piece together aspects of life in order to try to find a combination with which you feel happy? Do you find it an impossible task to be happy with every aspect of your life? What is it that would bring you true lasting happiness? Is it your truest desire to play a game of compete-for-survival? Or if you could choose for us all, would you choose something different? Does the inherent hardship of compete-for-survival and blame and punish make it difficult for you to achieve true lasting happiness? Do you have parts of yourself who find such a paradigm of life unappealing?
