I can't believe I didn't think of this later! Sometimes explaining things the way they are is insufficient and thus it becomes logical to use illogic to approach the problem. Saying things that arent true is the truest way to reach the truth, arent you? Consider literature, a collection of the wisest lies in space and time, written down, that sometimes rhyme. Whole cloth inventions of boundless tragedy trump reality in a world made mad by depravity.
Unhappiness is what you give an otherwise wise servant who, without convincing might come to conclude that life is better spent lying in a hammock. But an unhappy man cannot lie, unhappy as he is, without first correcting his discontent. And this thus shows exactly how it goes. Instead of hammocks we truthfully lie to our own selves to keep them unhappy, but standing. Unluckily we often stand for nothing in the first place.
