I think the opposite of happiness is not unhappiness. The opposite of happiness is apathy, which is the loss of joy that we feel in our lives. Because if you think about it, unhappiness can sometimes make us breakup with people we shouldn’t be dating. Or unhappiness can cause us to move to do different jobs, or it can cause us to want to get better grades in school. Unhappiness can be very helpful. What I think becomes the problem is when we’ve lost that joy in our lives. When we lose that joy striving towards our potential.
