Happiness, where is it found?

Many would argue that being happy is merely a choice all of us humans can cognitively make, at any given point of time. Yet, how much of our choice one way or the other is shaped from external factors? Can we chase down happiness, is it goal driven, is it accomplishment based, or is it found at the end of a rainbow intertwined with riches? Could a second hand emotion, love, be buried underneath the X on the happiness treasure map? Can it be prescribed or triggered through mind altering substances? …

I received an Email over the weekend from my son’s kindergarten teacher, enclosed was the school’s detailed description of how they planned to celebrate Dr. Seuss the first week of March. I read the contents and made a mental note of my son’s expectations for the following week. In celebration of the author his books would be read, pajamas and crazy socks were encouraged to be worn by students and staff all week long.

A couple of months back, I started taking notice of my social media network “friends” sharing common themed posts. The topic, you guessed it, non-fungible tokens.

Fortnite has become massive in recent years. It’s free to download and play, it’s available across all video game consoles including mobile. Players compete in a “Battle Royale” starting with 100 players, in an everyone for themselves elimination style battle to be the last one standing when the storm ends. (There really is a storm.)

Fortnite, although free to play, features “The Item Shop" that entices the player to equip themselves with the latest gear. The shop replenishes every 24 hours with new skins, emotes and “back bling." In my household the revealing of the newest items is an event…

Campaign

A smear campaign is a method of damage control that the narcissist impliments when they are concerned about being found out. The smear campaign will involve portraying the victim as the actual abuser with claims that they are crazy, bipolar, an addict, an alcoholic, unstable, a liar, a cheater and if there are children involved that they are a negelectfull bad parent.
They will create a series of lies, half truths, exaggerations, suspicions, and false accusations about the victim that serves to undermine their credibility in anything they say about the narcissist.
