We begin things with a certain expectation in mind. It makes sense. We believe in the value of a given activity because we believe in the outcome. We sit at a piano for the feelings evoked in the melody. Or we pursue a certain career for money or a sense of achievement.
So therefore it makes sense that if the activity did not deliver the desired outcome, one would eventually stop the activity. It follows a logical pattern.
But happiness seems somewhat elusive. An activity I once enjoyed can now be wrought with strife. Not the activity exactly but the associations formed. So following the above logic, it would be logical to cease the activity. Only will that remove an avenue to happiness?
