Quite a weird one, but let me try giving you my insight.
When you say “I want to be happy because I’m feeling bad,” you’re telling the truth, you’re solving a problem. There is acceptance of that “feeling bad” emotion.
Whereas, in the second statement, “I want to be happy because I want to be loved,” is not recognizing the root root cause of what triggers your desire of happiness. It’s imbalanced. It’s all Positive. I couldn’t see a problem, therefore why do something about it. That’s why we still keep doing what we don’t like doing.
That’s why we sometimes keep wanting and not doing anything, because we didn’t see any problem. We didn’t recognize the negative other side.
The same with seeing only the negative and not seeing the positive other side of your life.
Statements has to be balanced too in order to have a balance mind.
Instead of saying “I want prosperity because I want to be happy,” try saying, “I want prosperity because I am tired of of feeling that sense of lack!”
Instead of “I want to be happy because I want to be loved,” try saying “I want to be happy because I feel bad.” And you’ll do something about your want to be happy.
