An old man lived in a village. He was one of the most unfortunate people in the world. The whole village was tired of him; he was always gloomy, he constantly complained and was always in a bad mood. The longer he lived, the more bile he was becoming and the more poisonous were his words. People avoided him, because his misfortune became contagious. It was even unnatural and insulting to be happy next to him because he created the feeling of unhappiness in others.
One day, when he turned eighty years old, an incredible thing happened. Instantly everyone started hearing the rumour:
“That Old Man is happy today, he is not complaining about anything. He is full of smiles, and even his face is freshened up.”
The whole village gathered together. The old man was asked:
Villager: What happened to you? Why is your countenance different today?
"Nothing special", he replied, "Eighty years I’ve been chasing happiness, and it was useless. And then I decided to live without happiness and just enjoy life. That’s why I’m happy now.”
Moral of the story:
Don’t chase happiness. Enjoy your life.
