An old man lived in the village. The whole village was tired of him; he was always gloomy, he constantly complained and was always in a bad mood. The longer he lived, the more bitter he became and more poisonous were his words. People started avoiding him. He created the feeling of unhappiness in others.
But one day, when he turned 80, an amazing thing happened. Everyone started hearing the rumor: “The old man is happy today, he doesn’t complain about anything, smiles, and also his face is freshened up.”
The whole village gathered around the man. They asked him, “What happened to you?”
The old man replied, “Nothing special. Eighty years I’ve been chasing happiness and it was useless. And then I decided to live without happiness and just enjoy life. That’s why I’m happy now.”
Moral : Don’t chase happiness. Enjoy your life.
