Have you ever wondered why we are taught to seek happiness?

From Coca-Cola's slogan "Open happiness" to Sephoras' ad campaign "Wear happiness on your face", we are bombarded with the idea that happiness can be bought.

News alert: happiness cannot be bought.

True happiness comes from meaning. What is the meaning? A meaningful thing is usually achieved through sacrifice. How to obtain meaning? By taking responsibility and making sacrifices.

Meaning gives long-term happiness (global optima in machine learning terms). To find true happiness, seek meaning.
