Day 6: 14 Days of Valentines. Let's talk about the truth that no one can make you happy but yourself.
Yes, they talk about your second half and how they're supposed to complete you. That better half... What better half? Who is that better half? Why can't it be you?
I'm sure you know this but I'm going to repeat it for you:
you are whole and no one can complete you. The same way, you can't complete anyone else. We are individuals, not half-people.
We come into this world having everything that we need already within us. Yes, we will be impacted by others. Yes, others will teach us. Yes, we will teach others. But if we just sit in the quietness of our own mind, there is nothing we can't figure out.
Yes, Happiness is a Choice.
Now think of people that you love, are attracted to, or find aspirational. Aren't you drawn to the people who seem to be happy and smiling? Wouldn't you rather hang with people who are positive instead of people who ask you to pick them up piece by piece every time? (Not that you shouldn't help people.)
So wouldn't it be true for them too? Wouldn't they be more interested in hanging out with people who are happy with themselves instead of always trying to lighten up the mood? What an incredible concept :) We like people that are happy. We are liked by people when we are happy, too.
And we can be happy. It is all within us. Look in. Find it. Be it.
