When things aren't going the way we planned, how do we make ourselves happy?
That was a trick question...
First - if we think everything should go as we plan then we must also think we're in control.
Second - nothing we can buy or do will bring us true happiness. The happiness is typically short lived and the unhappiness returns even worse than before. A vicious cycle.
Want to be truly consoled. Turn to God first. Not last after trying everything else. Praise God!
