I just can't remember the last time I wasn't sad.


@Sarah Sorry to hear that, Sarah.

For Intelligent people, finding Happiness seems to be a much more elusive path.

@yann2 thanks, but honestly I'm not that smart 🤦🏽‍♀️

@yann2 @Sarah Some of the smartest people I know are pretty happy, but they are subtle in their approach to life and less self assured. Maybe it's that when people begin to know things they feel really smart because knowing something compared to knowing nothing is a pretty big difference. Later, when they know more and take pride in knowing, they realize their hopes cannot be met and become fairly miserable. After a long time scaling the mountain of human knowledge they realize they know comparatively nothing. Their ignorance vast and insurmountable. At that point they either despair or give up their pride in knowing and realize they can view the world as interesting once more.

@wistahe @yann2 this is brutally accurate I guess 🤦🏽‍♀️.
