Finding your own happiness

Finding your own happiness can be difficult. To demonstrate the point, a professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write their name on it and throw it in the hallway.

The professors then mixed all the balloons. The students were given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no one succeeded.

At that point the professors told the students to take the first balloon that they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it.

Within 5 minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The professors said to the students: “ Finding your own happiness is like trying to find your own balloon. You will never find it if everyone looks for their own.

However, if we care about the happiness of others….we might just find our own at the same time.”

  23. Hello everybody!
    I am Tony, I live in Finland and I am fond of construction)
    This is my hobby, I started it a couple of years ago during the COVID pandemic, my nerves were on edge, I was depressed (
    The psychologist told me to find a hobby, and it became construction! I studied a lot of topics and what can I say, having taken up construction, I became not only more successful, calm and friendly, but also sexy)

    Girls, having found out that I am a builder, are more open to more serious actions than just sitting in a bar, it really works!
    Good luck friends!
