Only YOU can make yourself happy

Hello, everyone. How are you all? I hope you are all doing well. I am personally dying from this ridiculous heat. Today has been so hot in the Netherlands that even wearing shorts and a  tank top still does not help. I am sweating like there is no tomorrow.

Make yourself happy

Anyway, when you look at the image above what thoughts cross your mind? I came across this image some days ago on my Facebook newsfeed and decided I wanted to write a little something about it.

I can only speak for myself since I am my own person, but when I look at the image above I agree wholeheartedly with it. This is because too many people have this naive perception that in order to be happy they need to be with someone to achieve that, which is not the case. In my opinion, happiness stems from a person’s mindset. A couple of weeks ago I saw a commentator write how having your own family will absolutely make you happy. This is not the case for every person. You have some people rushing into relationships, marriage or having children believing the nonesense that society spews, that once you have a family you will become happy or ‘feel completed’. Then you end up with parents killing their family because they were not happy at all, but instead they ended up being miserable.Of course, some external factors can contribute to happiness but if you cannot make yourself happy from the bottom of your heart, then who can? Your happiness starts with YOU!

You may have a very social life and have lots of friends, or even have everything you may desire but if you do not feel happiness from within youself you will never truly be happy. It is basically just covering up a festering wound with a BandAid. I strive to make myself happy. What are your thoughts on this? Please post your comments in the comment section below and let me know what you are thinking.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to see you onFriday for my next post. Until then, see you all next time.

  1. I looked for external happiness for a long time and found all the things that should have made me happy, a beautiful family, six figure job and more. But I found myself in a hotel room covering up lies wondering what happened and why I was miserable. Out of desperation I started meditating that day and my life has never been the same. With the turn inward happiness became obtainable. Now I can enjoy my family and my life. Thanks for the wonderful reminder!
