Honestly, are you happy?
Last year, I was watching the final match in Rome Open between Nadal and Djokovic. The stadium was stacked and heaving with people. Millions of people were watching the match all around the world.
As a tennis fan, you know it's going to be a fiercely competitive match at any day let alone being the final match. You literally cannot blink.
I was watching the match on TV, and I had my mind completely melted. I started sweating like I was the one on the court. The TV remote control turned into a racket, and I was emotionally swinging with every shot.
Later, at a nail-biting moment, the cameraman turned the camera to show one of the fans being busy taking selfies. I was stunned for a minute. I couldn't believe that someone would sit there and have his mind somewhere else. After the end of the match, I had a flashback of that moment, and I wasn't able to swallow that fan's act. I wasn't able to comprehend the desperation that some people have to post selfies on social media rather than enjoying the moment.
I thought that person was a fool, and he was trading the joy of the moment for the joy obtained from others' impressions, and he was enslaved by social media. You can't miss such a legendary moment for few likes on Instagram!
What is happiness?
Isn't what YOU feel?
Since when it became what OTHERS feel about you having fun?
