Compartmentalization Doesn’t Lead to Happiness

Compartmentalization doesn't lead to happiness yet countless people spend their entire lives pretending the awful stuff inside them doesn't exist. They literally take some part of their life they'd rather not examine, or that is too complex, and shove it in some dark corner of their minds instead of dealing with it and becoming a more well-rounded, balanced person.

It's very difficult to be happy when you think and behave differently in various parts of your life. For example: You say you value people but routinely do things that hurt them or you're very wealthy but don't have any close relationships. If one part of your life isn't working, it's impossible to pretend it's not happening, no matter how hard you try. It takes a lot of energy to try to ignore the parts of your life that aren't going well and it creates a situation where tension builds until something snaps.

Do some thinking about the areas in your life that aren't making you happy and work hard on bringing them into harmony and balance. You don't have to do it all at once, just one small step at a time.
