What if your happy ever after … isn’t? The Paradox of Happiness tells us that chasing our own happiness tends to make us unhappy. I use this old wisdom, together with more contemporary critiques of toxic positivity, as a springboard away from the pursuit of happiness, including the romantic “happy ever after.” When we centre eudaimonia rather than romance, sadness – and other “negative” emotions – can be a legitimate part of a meaningful love story.
