I Believe Happiness Comes From Within

we all believe that we control our happiness 3,577 People

    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.

    Today I was called the N-word by someone online

    today and it really made me upset and made me think as to why people can be so evil and cruel. This is 2016 and still there are people like this. I wonder as to why so many people (worldwide) think just because they have a smart phone or computer they can say horrible things to...

    Happiness

    I think back at the things that have happened in my life. I try to think of some of the happiest moments in my life. And with this I have come to a realization. I remember one of the happiest moments in my life. I was young, I was about 13 years old. Perhaps moments are just...

    I have all the answers I need

    everyday. Good things will come! Don't cling so much on negative things or bad memories. Past is in the past! You can never undo it but you can always give yourself a second chance. Decide to always be happy. This world is cruel! You live temporarily so as long as you are...

    Don't live your life constricted in your

    actions, because of what other people may or may not think of you. That is just stupidity. You have the freedom to try new things, wear and say whatever you want. Have fun in life. Be happy.

    Happiness starts within you.

    Not with your relationships, not with your job, not with your money, but within you.

    Happiness Everyone wants to be happy,

    believing in a requirement for happiness is the same as disbelieving in happiness where the requirements have not been met (a nocebo). Happiness is a choice, there are no requirements other than the decision to be happy. If you believe love is required for happiness then you are...

    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...

    Some Think They Can Buy Happiness

    Happiness is there, waiting to get out. You are suppressing it. You have control of it.   Why do so many people spend so much money shopping, with the explanation that it “makes me happy”?  Why do we see so many people on ‘Shopaholic’ type of...

    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..
