There is 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. Being happy isn’t about others accepting us. We need to accept ourselves first, before we can even think about feeling happy. To be happy is a soulful journey. Happiness starts with the soul. We must understand our lives; our experiences, understand our baggage, our disappointments, as well as our trials and triumphs.
Start from the inside and work outwards. Learn to love who you are and what you have become, because that’s where happiness begins. What you add from there, continues to add to how you feel about yourself.
