As we grow older we become more self confident. As our confidence grows we begin to realize that our own happiness has NOTHING to do with others.
Our happiness comes from within us, PERIOD, Full stop!!!
For example, I could be having a hell of a day and feel miserable and yet if someone was to give me a million dollars, I know for certain my mood would instantly change.
Why? Because I am in control of how I feel and I changed focus to the million dollars I just received and the other experiences I had during the day melted away.
We are very powerful, more than most of us realize, and with this power, comes choice.
Enjoy choosing to be happy and not allowing our happiness to rely on others. Find that happiness inside of yourself and embrace your independence from others!
