If you want to be a better person and truly aim to be happy, it’s up to you to do so. Nobody else is going to tell you to do it. Nobody else has the responsibility towards you to make you happy, your happiness is your responsibility, so don’t let it depend on someone else.
Off course people and your relationships with them will add to or lessen your happiness, that’s normal. If you lose a good friend or gain one, your levels of happiness are sure to change. However, you need to be able to hold your own when it comes to being happy.
You are the only one with the power to realise that, only you can make the decision that you’ll start being happy right now, instead of waiting for the ideal person to base your happiness on.
You own personal content, your happiness, isn’t something that you can go buy in the store. It’s different for everyone and that’s what makes it so beautiful and difficult (at first) to attain. Once you decide to be happy in your own skin, you’ll start creating a happiness that’s purely your own and even better to send out to the world.
I do believe that I will one day find someone to share my happiness with. And then I want him to able to share his own cultivated happiness with me too.
