Life Is Twofold! ALC Fes Student Voice

What Is Happiness? Life Is Twofold by Ibrahim in Advanced 4

With a lot of people speaking about happiness, I have come up with a theory (I don’t know why I call it that, but I do), and I would like to share it with you. It is entitled “life is twofold.”
Happiness is partial, never complete, and takes the form of a circle in which the same patterns alternately repeat themselves again and again. This means that someone will always experience fragmented patches of happiness and the opposite of happiness until their final days. There is no period of time in life that we call “the period of happiness.” As you have felt happy and sad in the past, you will feel the same in the future; this is what I mean by the same patterns constantly repeat themselves. The dead man went through the same patterns, and the newborn baby will live the same patterns; only the timing changes.
And believe me, what makes you happy today might make you sad tomorrow; this is a painful truth of which I have recently grown aware. As we are vulnerable and live in an unpredictable world full uncertainty and danger, we should accept our fate, cherish the periods of happiness, and resist the periods of sadness.
I liken happiness to a mirage in the desert. The sweaty, thirsty man is euphoric when he sees water from afar; as he walks desperately nearer, the water disappears. Never try to run after happiness; you will never catch it. Don’t work for it; you will never achieve it. Enjoy happiness when it knocks on your door unexpectedly and before it leaves again.
Life is fun only when it is unpredictable.
