Trading Happiness

How many people out there are unhappy because they are taking the "easy" way out? There are fundamental problems with their relationship or their job, but instead of facing the problem head on, they put off the "life changing" discussion because it's "easier".

Is it really easier?

Today it might be. Tomorrow it might be. But before you know it, those days add up to weeks, months, and, before you know it, years of unhappiness. And for what? In the name of easy.

No one wants life to be complicated or stressful, so they stomp out those "little" thoughts by ignoring them. And let me tell you, there are very few problems in life that aren't just the sum of a series of little problems that weren't dealt with along the way.

Sometimes you have to trade in short term happiness for the greater overall good.
