    Can't Please Everyone....

    I used to believe that if you were pleasant, honest, straight forward cordial....then there would be little or no problems with any action you did in life.  I have since found out that especially when we are in a relationship and allow someone in to our inner sanctum as well...

    Damned If You Do and Damned If You Don't

    That has always been my life story.  Especially the last three years of my life where my marriage has been concerned.  When I first married my husband, I tried to make him happy and nothing I did was ever good enough.  He was that way with my 7 year old son as...

    You Are Certainly Off to a Good Start!

    I Can't Make You Happy

    I have been married for almost 3 years now.  My wife tells me all the time that she can't make me happy until she makes herself happy.  I think this is total BS.  We only make love about every 1-2 months and I can tell she is only doing it to satisfy me. ...

    We Can't Make Other People Happy

    Don't Seem to Care Anymore

    I have been struggling with some pretty major issues concerning myself lately.  What a surprise.  One of the issues is that I can't make people enjoy themselves or me.  Intellectually I always know this.  It is that whole emotional over taking that I can't...

    It's A Choice

    I can't make you happy, just like I can't depend on you or anyone else for my happiness.    Happiness is a choice. I can choose to do things that make me happy. I can choose to be involved with people who bring positive things to  my life. I choose where I go...

    Happiness Is Within

    Happiness comes from the inside, not the outside. The greatest mistake we make is to think that someone *out there* can make us happy *in here*.  We have to make ourselves happy.  The way to do that is to just be happy with who you are, to accept yourself, love...
