Take responsibility for your happiness

Although it may not always seem like it, happiness is a choice. We tend to blame certain situations from our past or those around us for how we feel or where we are in life, not realizing that we are the ones to blame. Real happiness is found within yourself not from unpredictable, everyday occurrences or how others perceive you. Take responsibility for your happiness by being comfortable with who you are, even though everyone may not be. We definitely are our worst enemy sometimes. Things we’d forgive in others, we can’t forgive in ourselves. Think about it: Would you be friends with you after hearing some of the things that you say and think about yourself? Instead of accepting what others say about you as the truth or comparing yourself to others, take time to encourage yourself daily until you begin to believe it…

“Accept everything about yourself–I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end–no apologies, no regrets.” Clark Moustakas

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” Dr. Suess

“Be what you are. This is the first step towards becoming better than you are.” J. C. Hare & A. W. Hare (Guesses at Truth: Second Series)

“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.” Pope John XXIII

  1. Here’s another reference for you: “The Art of Happiness: a handbook for living” by His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler M.D. (published in 1998) about shifting our perspective in order to bring about change. It’s an excellent resource on personal responsibility for our own happiness, as well as a thought-provoking comment on the general issue of human rights.
