Thoughts on Happiness

You deserve to be happy. How you define what happiness is depends on you. But you'll never attain it if you think you aren't worthy of it.

You aren't deserving of happiness if, through your actions, you intentionally try to inhibit or destroy the happiness of others. Having said that, there is a certain responsibility on the receiver of some actions/words. The person who is on the receiving end of incorrectly perceived intentionality, is mistaken when they think the person to blame for their unhappiness is the person who delivers it. When intent is good and facts are accurate, the receiver must honestly keep his/her own personal issues in check and assume responsibility for the emotions it produces.


  1. True words - and ones this person-fighting-depression needs to keep in mind more often. The world at large might be alienating me, but not because I deserve to be! ;-)

  2. correct and in addition, sometimes you just have to say "world, you're the problem" :)
