Joy is temporary

In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you - Andrea Dykstra

 
Do not let anyone invalidate your experiences.

Loving yourself is to spend more time in becoming a better person, and to surround yourself with people that bring you joy.

Joy is temporary. Within a few days, life can turn upside down. Why, as mortal beings, we think of everlasting happiness. 

Even attempts to bring long term happiness are centered around the assumption that the conditions that enable joy now will remain the same later.

Long term doesn't matter. Age doesn't matter.

I may be 30 years old, but I may the physical capability of an 80 year old. I may be 40 years old but I may have the physical capability of a 20 year old.

Do what brings you joy now.
