happy life for me..you only live once~make it count
I'm in the middle of this situation right now.... I'll let you know when I finally decide.
yeah I just read your story. I'm sorry about your situation. Doesn't being in limbo just suck?
Me three. Uggg!
Count me in.......
sounds like we all should just have a party
If someone's happiness depended on my being unhappy, then I wouldn't want them in my life.
I was in that type of situation for 2 years and realized how powerful hope can be. Once I realized that I could never have what I really wanted in life with the man that I had, I left. I've been so happy and at peace ever since!!!
I chose an unhappy life to make others happy. The problem is they're not, so I will be soon choosing a happy life for myself. Decided I can't live for other people anymore.
my happiness is my own responsibility. someone else's happiness is their responsibility.
This right here is a tough question for me.
sometimes giving happiness to others makes me feel happy,,,,,,,actually all the time.
I tend to sacrifice my own happiness to make sure someone else is happier, bu then knowing someone is happy because you made the right decision isn't always a sacrifice, even if the decision left you unhappy
Then why would I choose to be unhappy to make someone else happy? ... Its my life.. I have the right to be happy.. I would choose to be happy and let the someone else make themselves happy with their own life. Life is short.. nobody stays happy.
Depended if I disliked the person I would be making unhappy or If I loved the person I would be making happy.
Let me rephrase.. I would have no problem making someone unhappy that I disliked to make myself happy.. on the other hand.. If I could make my daughter happy, even if it meant me being unhappy, I would do it in a second.
I did choose an unhappy life to make another's Happy. :)
No, it was a completely different situation.
Grumpy people usually aren't very successful at making others happy.
some people like my self chose to make others happy in turn that makes me happy.Some people are just like that and our lives would never be unhappy regardless.
I don't know. But I thought it might be worth pointing out that this is exactly the choice that many personality disordered people feel they are facing. They usually pick "happy."
tough question! it would depend on the person. For my wife, absolutely. For a neighbor who pissed me off...no way!!!
I would choose happiness if I can ..
However the happiness I wish for is an illusion I have given up ...and decided that my happiness is secondary .
I believe that each person is responsible for his/hers own happiness. How can you make others happy when you are not happy?
If someone is unhappy and suffering from pain, victimization, and or other problems, then I would give up my happiness for him or her.
I am choosing unhappiness over happiness. I am so concerned about breaking my two daughters hearts (3 and 5) by splitting up with their father. He drinks too much and we have no relationship, I do not feel love from him but the kids love him to bits. They are happy, he is happy as long as he has cider and cigs, I am lonely.
