Key To Happiness

What makes you happy?

I have always read that true happiness lies within you. If you are not happy with yourself how can you be happy towards others. Im constantly searching for something that makes me happy. For a long time, I always depended my happiness off of others. This, I know now, is wrong. From my experience this has become one of the most toxic feelings I have ever experienced. Not having a good day until I speak to someone who makes me happy. I would wait all week even months to say I had a good day because I spoke a certain person. WRONG! I can’t tell you how amazingggg it feels to let this feeling go. If you are going through this now, and feel like you need this person or people to be happy, to smile, to feel good about yourself, know that it will go away and you will fond happiness where it has been all long, and that is YOU! 

This is an issue a close friend of mine is going through as well. She feels as if her life line and everything that makes her happy is her best friend. I try and tell her not to put so much of her happiness in one person. To me that is not okay. That will only put pressure on the person you are basing your “life” on and who knows maybe you will push them away. 

People leave. Not always in a bad way. It can be as simple as growing apart. What happens when that person leaves? Where does your happiness go? Are you going to sit and wait for them to come back? 

It makes me sad to think that people can’t be happy unless it is because of someone. Truth is you can! 

This doesn’t mean that having someone around that makes you happy is wrong, it means that there is so much happiness beyond them. 

The true happiness lies within you, and once you figure out how to make that your priority, you will feel completely new!

  1. Expectations always leads to sorrow! Our happiness totally depends upon us, because it is we who decide how to react to the situation.
    Happiness is a state of mind which has nothing to do with the external world.

  2. There is much truth in what you say. I left a horrible relationship where I “needed” him. I was devastated. I swore I would never need someone ever again. I’m currently in a wonderful relationship that I “choose” to stay in because of love. It took a long way to get here, though.

    My one concern, however, is the generalization. As a person who has bipolar, when I’m in a depressive state it is not by choice and no amount of meme’s or quotes, etc. are going to make it any better. Because of my disease, I cherish the times when I’m balanced, but when clinical depression hits, I’ve learned I just have to ride it out the best I can.
