If someone tells you that you made them happier than they have ever been…
don’t be surprised if when they become unhappy you get all the blame.
We should not be held responsible for anyone else’s happiness but our own. Can we contribute? Yes, but only as much as it feels balanced, right and good. No one should sacrifice their long-term happiness for another. No one.
Being 100% responsible for our happiness isn’t easy, nor does it mean we will always be happy with everything in our lives… yet our happiness need not be controlled by external people or circumstances. Happiness should bubble up from within.
So make yourself happy! Contribute to the lives of others as it feels good to you… but walk away if you are ever blamed for another’s misery. It feels like they are giving you their power but really they just want to take yours away.
Be happy. Love on.
