They wanted the effect without the right cause.
The Law Of Causality
Unhappiness is the result of believing you deserve something you have not earned.
Life is much simpler than most people want you to believe.
You do x and you get y.
It’s a simple math equation.
The problem is the average person thinks he deserves y just because he want its.
This person has been taught to believe that he can achieve y just by talking about it, just by being a good person, or just by being born.
This is literally nonsense.
According to the book Discrete Mathematics with Applications, if x is a necessary cause of y, then the presence of y necessarily implies the presence of x.
In other words…
You can’t deserve y when you haven’t done x.
You certainly can’t achieve y without doing x.
You can want something you have not earned. This is simply logical ambition.
But you cannot deserve something you have not earned. This is irrational evasion.
When you believe you deserve something you have not earned, you’re evading reality.
You’re trying to reverse the law of causality.
You’re trying to have your cake and eat it too.
