I always hear that you are the only person that can make yourself happy. I used to ignore that and think someone else can make me happy. What I realized is that others are not in control of my happiness, I am in control of my happiness. Yes, others may help increase my happiness, but I am the one that is in control. If I am happy because of someone else then that happiness will disappear with that person. It is ok to live for others, but you need to make sure you don’t forget about yourself.
I find myself lost right now. I need to focus on being happy by myself. I need to focus on being my own person. Nobody wants to be with someone that is completely reliant on them. I’m also beginning to realize how much this journey needs to be for me. It’s great for others to be proud of me, but I am not trying to impress anyone, I’m trying to impress myself. Wish me luck!
