"Who would benefit if you were to remain unhappy? Being happy is not about being a grinning idiot, or avoiding suffering, or staying well away from the abyss. Its about approaching this abyss and peering deep down into it so that although your very soul may shiver, you will know that on a deep and fundamental level you will not succumb. Its that confidence, that knowing that whatever happens, you will handle it, that allows that anxiety to evaporate and that core happiness to rise in its place."
