A happy soul is the best shield for a cruel world. - Atticus

As we grow up, all of us are prepared to face the big, bad world that awaits us. We are made aware of the harshness that we will all face. As we grow up and become independent, it is important that we know how to shield ourselves from the ravages of the world.

We do make friends and allies along the way but there are times in life when we find ourselves all alone. The problems are such that the only person who can solve it is our own self.

It is important that we make ourselves happy, strong and confident enough to take on any problem that we face. We should know how to keep our soul happy.

Often, we indulge in activities that keep us happy but only in exteriorly. It doesn’t appeal to the soul. To truly understand what can keep our soul happy we need to be in touch with ourselves and under what is actually important to us.

You can try a number of things until you find the remedy to keep your soul happy. It is very important to do so because when you need the courage and strength to face something adverse, it is this happy soul that will give you the required push.

It can also shield you from grief by making you feel hopeful about your future and telling you that – ‘this too shall pass.

We sometimes depend on others a little too much for our own happiness and that is how we risk it at the same time. No matter how much we think that we know the person well, human behavior is still unpredictable.

Therefore, it is best if you have a happy soul and rely on it to act as a shield from the cruel world so that you are always enough for your own self.
