There’s often a misconception about being happy. Being happy isn’t about making other people happy. We don’t just become happy, because we make other people happy.
Being happy is a state of mind, which we very rarely achieve. Being happy isn’t also about others accepting us. We need to accept ourselves first, before we can even think about how to feel happy. To be happy, we must understand our experiences; our lives, our baggage, our disappointments, as well as our trials and triumphs.
We must start from the inside and work outwards. Learn to love who we are, because that’s where happiness begins. What we add from there, continues to add to how we already feel about ourselves.
