Happiness Risk

Am I really willing to take the risk to be happy?

“Most people would rather be certain they’re miserable, than risk being happy.”

-Dr. Robert Anthony

While I tell myself frequently I want to be happy, there is risk involved. With a known situation, even if it’s miserable, there is at least some comfort in the familiarity of it.

I have never considered myself much of a risk-taker. Sure, there have been some times in life where I have gone beyond my comfort zone and taken some chances.

Now, I’m asking myself: Would I rather be certain I’m miserable (but maybe somewhat comfortable) than risk being happy?
