Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
-14th Dalai Lama
No matter what’s happening, you have a choice to be happy or sad, or angry, or frustrated, or any other emotion that you could feel. Helping people can help lead to happiness, but so can doing things for yourself, and you have to work on it every day. Relationships are hard, but how is your relationship with yourself. Do you often sell yourself short, thinking that it will make others happy or feel better? Doing things for others at the expense of your happiness can be like a cancer. If you are doing things for those you love, make sure to take time for yourself. Others can support your happiness, but don’t expect them to make you happy. Make your actions count!
