I Believe Happiness Comes From Within

we all believe that we control our happiness 3,392 People

    Happiness is not in having things.

    .it's not found in others..it's found within yourself. It's your attitude and how you react to the world around you..once I realized it really is a choice? I feel true happiness and contentment in my life..

    This is so very true.

    If your happiness depends on any external source out of your control, than it will be inherently tied to it. But the problem is external people and things are out if our control, and liable to constantly shift and change. True happiness begins from within, and if you develop...

    Happiness is not determined by what's happening

    around you, but rather what's happening inside you. Most people depend on others to gain happiness, but the truth is, it alwayes comes frome within.

    I know what I've been searching

    for SUCH a long time. I have the answer. I know how to reach happiness. The answer is staring you at your face; I bet you would not have guessed it. Happiness does not lie in your thinking or perspective, it lies in sexual energy which shapes/governs human thinking and emotion.
