Happiness is like an idea which is about to born, raising in the gloom, and you notice it, you know that something good is about to come. Then you want it more, you start to drag it out from that gloom. You want it so much that it does not matter what you will drag out, just to get is out to the light as soon as possible, because you want this.
If you let him come out by himself, if you would make him calm with that only you are waiting for him, and the know that he will come out once, because this is for sure, than he would came out. Soon. But right now, instead he is hiding back in the gloom, because he realized that time is not arrived yet to come out.
