According to Gretchen Rubin, “One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy. One of the best way to make other people happy is to make yourself happy.”
We get what we give to other people. If you want to be happy, give happiness to other people.
When it comes to your happiness, don’t wait for other people to make you happy. It is not their duty to make YOU happy. It is your responsibility to make YOU happy.
Here are more lessons we can learn from happiness:
