Why The Right To Be Unhappy Is A Human Right

Being upset at your boss or being frustrated in relationship doesn’t seem to be a human right. This is an expression of the fact that we are not born with our rights or our emotions. They are gifts bestowed on all of us by those with the power to change our lives. This kind of unconditional love comes from the Creator, who loves us with compassion and understanding and so should we, all of us.

A very important human right, the right of the unselfish person to be happy, is not one that should be given away at birth. Rather, the right of the unselfish person to be happy comes first from the Creator. This is the fundamental way our lives are set up to be. A person’s right to be happy and to be unselfish come into play from birth, but that is not the most significant reason. The right to be happy stems from the ability to change one’s mind. When this is not true, any person to be happy, is, as Einstein once said, a “fool.”

It’s the way we’ve evolved. In this sense, it’s not only about the right to be happy but about love. This is because love is one of the greatest gifts that God grants to people. It is such a tremendous gift that it can make life very difficult, especially when we don’t truly receive it from God. But when we are being unselfish, it is our way of love and of giving love that is of great value to others – our own children.

How we live our lives, the amount we give to the people we love, is the key to love and happiness. If our love is not consistent, if we are not able to give enough of ourselves, it will do nothing for us. We don’t want to be in the situation in which we are not able to give to others how we really feel about them. What we are able to give them is our own ability to change our mind. This means giving up our comfort zone, being open to change, looking at problems from a wider perspective.

When we are healthy, we can love others as we love ourselves. In sickness, when we feel weak, insecure, unhappy, or resentful, sometimes we get so caught up in our problems. We can’t really look at ourselves, so we blame everyone else, blame other people. The most important thing is not to blame someone else or to blame God; because, if we blame God, then He is responsible for our problems. But if we look at ourselves we feel better, more secure. The trouble happens when things like that happen, when we don’t look at ourselves, and we get caught up in others’ problems. But if we look at God, He makes us love better.

This is not to say that we are powerless. When something really gets us down, it can be very hard to stand back up. That is not the place to look at ourselves. But when we realize that we are not in control, then we are in control. We don’t have a choice. If somebody does something really awful to somebody else, and if the rest of us stand there and are silent – then, if we do not speak a word, we just are sitting ducks.

This is a difficult concept, because it is easy to think that we have been taught to speak up and act, to be vocal and complain. But sometimes we don’t know what to do, and we become paralyzed, and we sit down and quietly suffer or are silent. Sometimes, we suffer because we don’t know what to say or how to say it. But sometimes we are not able to say it at all, and we just cry or cry and we get tired and then we don’t even think about talking all through that period.

There is one person who is always in the right, who has the power to stop people from being upset. That person is the God of Love . When the God of Love is there, everything is just possible. When we are happy in relationships we do what we do because we love others, because we are being unselfish in our love.   When we are happy we say things of love, and our words of love are heard, because we give. And, when we are happy we also give of ourselves, because love is a great gift from the Creator to us.

When we are unselfish, we do not give of ourselves for others. We give of ourselves for ourselves. We do not ask from our partners what might make them happy, what they ought to do.
