Are you Faking Your

Happiness?

Fakery is never good. However, there may be times when you may need to pretend to be happy. It could be because you want to avoid hurting someone, or it’s a part of your job, or you want to fit in in a new environment. Whatever the case may be, just make sure you don’t end up fooling yourself into thinking you’re happy when you’re actually not. Here are six compelling reasons why you shouldn’t fake your happiness:

1.

You’re eventually going to hurt the people you’ve lied to

Pretending to be happy may work for a short period of time. But the longer it drags on, the more you convince people you are indeed happy. But what happens when the truth finally comes out? They are going to feel utterly disappointed, destroyed even, especially if they genuinely cared about your well-being. They would feel like they’ve wasted their time and effort trying to make you happy, only to find out you’ve been faking it this whole time. If you are trying to build long-lasting relationships, don’t lie.

2.

You’re going to turn it into a bad habit

When you routinely fool yourself and others into thinking you are happy, then chances are you could be turning your fakery into a bad habit. It’s like putting a wall of fake happiness between you and others. They think they know you, but the sad truth is, they don’t.

3.

You’ll start resenting genuinely happy

people

The more you see genuinely happy people, the more you realize how effortless and natural their happiness is. You, on the other hand, must put on an entire persona to look happy. You will start questioning why they have it easier than you do, and that's just not a nice thing to be doing.

4.

You’re not going to grow as a person

When you are boxing yourself into a corner by hiding your true feelings, you’re not going to grow. And by grow, I mean, developing positive habits and generally, improving yourself.

5.

You’re going to end up physically sick

You can actually become physically ill when you force yourself to act happy. Putting on a fake happy persona can take its toll on you and increase your stress levels. You would eventually become tired of it all.

6.

You’re going to hurt yourself

Lying to yourself can do that to you. You’re not just hurting yourself emotionally, but also mentally and physically. You can only take so much abuse. Get your act together and seek the true happiness that you deserve. So many times, when I work with people for both depression and anxiety, clients tell me “I just pretend I’m happy”. This just does not help them as it is delaying getting to true happiness. The first step is to change your mindset around what real happiness is. If you feel you need help getting this mindset then hypnosis can tap into your true happiness. If you would like more information on how that works then you can find details on how to contact me via my contact page.
