    聊一聊-给幸福一个机会

    I live in Hollywood. You may think people in such a glamorous, fun-filled place are happier than others. If so, you have some mistaken ideas about the nature of happiness.
    我住在好莱坞。你可能认为住在这样一个魅力四射、充满欢笑的地方要比其他人更幸福。倘若如此,你就误解了幸福的本质。

    Many intelligent people still equatehappiness with fun. The truth is that fun and happiness have little or nothing in common. Fun is what we experience during an act. Happiness is what we experience after an act. It is a deeper, more abiding emotion.
    许多聪明人依旧将幸福与娱乐等同起来。事实上,娱乐与幸福很少、甚至毫无共同之处。娱乐是某个活动进行中的体验,而幸福则是活动之后的体验。幸福是更深刻、更持久的情感。


    Going to an amusement park or ball game, watching a movie or television, are fun activities that help us relax, temporarily forget our problems and maybe even laugh. But they do not bring happiness, because their positive effects end when the fun ends.
    去游乐场或去看球赛,看电影或看电视,这些都是娱乐活动,有助于我们放松身心,暂时忘却自己的难题,甚至让我们放声大笑。但是,这一切并不能带来幸福,因为娱乐一结束,它们的正面效应亦随之终结。

    I have often thought that if Hollywood stars have a role to play, it is to teach us that happiness has nothing to do with fun. These rich, beautiful individuals have constant access to glamorousparties, fancy cars, expensive homes, everything that spells "happiness".
    我常常这样想,如果好莱坞明星起到某种作用的话,那就是向我们昭示幸福与娱乐毫无关系。作为个人,他们富有,楚楚动人,可以随时出席令人神往的宴会,拥有顶尖级汽车、昂贵的宅第--这一切似乎意味着“幸福”。

    But in memoir after memoir, celebrities reveal the unhappiness hidden beneath all their fun: depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, broken marriages, troubled children, profound loneliness.
    然而,在一部又一部的回忆录中,名流们揭示了隐藏在这一切娱乐活动背后的不幸:忧郁、酗酒、吸毒成瘾、失败的婚姻、饱受困扰的孩子、极度的孤独。

    The way people clingto the belief that a fun-filled, pain-free life equates happiness actually diminishes their chances of ever attaining real happiness. If fun and pleasure are equated with happiness, then pain must be equated with unhappiness. But, in fact, the opposite is true: More times than not, things that lead to happiness involve some pain.
    人们执迷不悟,以为充满欢笑、没有痛苦的生活就等于幸福;这实际上减少了他们真正臻于幸福之境的可能性。如果娱乐和快乐等同于幸福的话,那么痛苦必然等同于不幸福。可事实正相反:导致幸福的一切常常蕴含着些许痛苦。

    As a result, many people avoid the very endeavors that are the source of true happiness. They fear the pain inevitably brought by such things as marriage, raising children, professional achievement, religious commitment, civicor charitablework, and self-improvement.
    因此,许多人不愿努力,而这些努力恰恰正是真正幸福的源泉。诸如婚姻、抚育子女、职业成就、宗教信仰、公共及慈善事业、自身修养等必然带来痛苦,他们因而对于这一切心怀畏惧。

    The landlord took a toolkit down and tried to pry the nails out when groaning at the same time. After the nails were removed, the walls were left with numerous holes. All of a sudden, she felt harshly heartbroken as if her heart was pierced through those holes and bleeding nonstop。房东从楼上拿了一把工具下来,一边撬铁钉一边埋怨。铁钉被一个个撬下来,墙上留下了一个个洞。她的心里突然难受起来,仿佛那些洞是她的心,正汩汩地往外流血。

      She sprang from the seat and exclaimed, “Stop prying the nails! We will continue renting the house and will only move away after we buy our own!” He looked at her with great surprise, and then turned round, tearing over his face. 她突然跳起来:“不要撬了,我们还要继续租,等买了新房再搬。”他惊讶地看着她,转过身去,泪流满面。

      She finally came to understand that marriage was like a wall and that all quarrels, “cold wars” and suspicions were like the nails on the wall. When all the nails were removed, only a wall with numerous holes would be left. But if all the nails were still in their own places, the wall was still intact and reliable. But in the past, what she saw was only those provoking nails。她终于明白,婚姻就像一堵墙。争吵、冷战、猜疑都争着往上面钉上一个个铁钉,当铁钉全部撤去,留下的只是千疮百孔的墙。但是只要铁钉还牢牢地在上面,这堵墙就是完整的,让人可以安心依靠。而从前,她却只看见那些刺眼的铁钉。

      They hung all the things back to the wall. He asked her, “Are you really willing to lead a tough life with me?” She patted

      away the ashes on hands and looked at the walls with loads of stuff on them satisfactorily, saying, “Yes! For me, it is not a suffering to live。她和他把该挂在墙上的又都挂了上去。他问:“你真的愿意跟着我继续受苦吗?”她拍拍手上的灰,满意地看着挂满东西的墙说: “不,这是老天给我幸福的机会。”
