Allow yourself to be happy
“I can’t take it anymore.
I feel awful.
I think I am going crazy.
There is no help for me.
My life has no meaning.”
“We are looking for short stories and poems that celebrate the triumph of the human spirit, that raise up the humanity of man and we want you to be part of this amazing project. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the AMAR Foundation. AMAR is an award-winning charity that works in the Middle East to help millions rebuild their lives in countries scarred by war. We couldn't think of a more worthy recipient of the money from a book dedicated to the core values of friendship, love and tolerance.”
The man with shaking hands
Our memory is tricky. Often, my parents tell me sweet stories from when I was little. I love the stories, but I don’t remember them. Sometimes I feel as though they imagine these events. Still, some things will remain in our minds no matter how old we grow—certain happenings from our youth that left a mark on us.
Question your relationship
You’re in love. You feel butterflies, and every cell of your body breathes for your loved one. Life has a new meaning. You don’t need anything other than the one you love. You generously express deep feelings of love for each other, and pure happiness radiates all around.
Work what you love
“Oh, no! Tomorrow is Monday again, and I don’t feel like going to work.”
“I hate Mondays.”
“I hate my alarm clock. I wish to discover a way to live without being a slave to it. I wish I could sleep every night for as long as possible.”
“My working day passes so slowly. I can’t wait for it to end.”
“Thank God it is Friday!”
“Why do weekends fly by so quickly?”
“I need a holiday.
"In hope of a world, that does not celebrate the fake & the cold
In hope of a world where true emotions can be uphold
In hope of a world where truth is told
In hope of the world where sugar coated abuses are not sold
In hope of a world that does not force you to fit in & fold
In hope of a world where tears are allowed to unfold
You are not told to fake happy when your heart can no longer hold
In the hope of a world that doesn’t go numb & cold,
While faking positivity & not being bold
In hope of that world where you & I can be true to our core
We are not judged for being human
And not expected to be a bot, running on a computer code
Let the beauty of true emotions and the warmth of real unfold
Sweet, sour, bitter, happy, sad, high, low, cold
Sincere bonds and true connects
Let us not turn the world into a fake emotion(less) zone"
