There is no lower or upper limit to what a person might find happiness in. It could be a very small thing, or a big bond of happy. Life consists of many turn events, all these turn events are motivated by the core human values & feelings i.e Empathy, love, sadness, happiness & hatred.
From day one all good people in your life teach you to be happy, cheerful, to think positive & be social. Parents want you to be happy & successful and to lead a good life. Teachers teach you all that you know, oh at least some do. While, everybody tells you to live life as you want to, though it doesn’t really work that way. As you start to live it your own way, things start to go south & then the need to change your ways of life arises . Slowly & without a hint either you turn into a self righteous person or you just start to go with the flow, being nice & doing what others want you to do.
Though there is nothing wrong in doing a bit of what others want, it’s a good thing indeed to think about how your actions might affect others and to make sure that the ones you love or care about are happy in every way possible & to work in everyway that you can help to make it fruitful for them, even if that includes a little bit of self-sacrifice.
Being supportive in everyway possible is a very good deed to do. But, in the process of being supportive & making sure of the comfort of others, just make sure that you know the limit of how much you can actually do without loosing yourself. If you think that it’s not going to happen, think again. We Humans have a tendency of being nice to the ones that are nice to us. If you think, your relation, be it any relation is very nice & blooming with happiness, try mixing some sour moments therein & see the results. It’s always the bad time that shows the true faces of every & all relations you got.
All the rules & guidelines that our lives are tied to in todays world are only made by us & there is nothing wrong in questioning them or even breaking some of them, if necessary. I don’t intend to tell you to revolt, but using an open mind & living the way you want to is not wrong until it adversely affects people close to you.
Expression of what you feel is equally important, keep it within you for very long & it starts to sting & smell. Don’t run over the thoughts that your mind gives out & on the feelings that your heart has. You are also important & you also deserve to be happy.
