I Believe Happiness Comes From Within

we all believe that we control our happiness 2,992 People

    The truth lies inside us all

    and we must look within ourselves to find what has been forgotten. I truly believe that no person place or thing can give you lasting happiness because it is already there, inside of you, waiting to remind you who you are.

    You will never be happy

    if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

    "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line."

    We sometimes go through phases in this life where we think 'if only' things were different...if only this, or if only that, or if only so and so were more this or more that. I do suppose it's only human and natural that we do this. However, one thing dawned on me...perhaps we...

    I definitely believe in the fact

    that happiness comes from within a person's inner beauty. If you are not happy with yourself, then how can you be happy with others? You can't not truly happy.

    There is nothing closer to you then yourself.

    If you don’t know yourself, how will you know others? You might say, “I know myself”, but you are mistaken....The only thing you know about yourself is your physical appearance. The only thing you know about your inside is that when you are hungry you eat, when you are...

    but made. It does not depend on what you do not have, but on the use you make of what you do have. It is not something far from yourself but the most intimate part of your being. It is the consciousness of a good, and the greater and more lasting this is, the greater will be...

    I enjoy doing nothing on my weekends.

    I like to lay back and relax outside. I feel guilty for not going out and doing the whole social thing (as others have suggested I do), but this is what makes me happy and feel content.
