We are all deserving of happiness, and no one else can give this to you, but you. If you are not happy in your current situation change it! You have that option, no one can make you happy or sad. Happiness comes from within, we are in control. We only lose this if we give our power away to another person.
We are all born happy and filled with love, it all changes as we grow up and from what we learn from others. If you are in a family that is unhappy and they blame everyone else for this, then that is what you learn. You grow up believing this and although deep down you know that it is not true, you react to what you see and not what you feel. You grow to think that if you feel happy within yourself that this is wrong and you should feel guilty for having this feeling. So you change how you feel within to what is going on around you, to be miserable as everyone else is. If you are all unhappy together, then maybe this is what happiness really is. How can this be true?
Then there are others who are in very happy families. They grow up being happy everyday and think that there is no other way to live. These people are usually the ones who become successful as they do not know how not to be. They see the good in everything around them because this is how they feel inside. So why can't everyone feel this way and have wonderful lives? Well we can!
There comes a time in every ones life when they question is there something more out there for me. Yes there is, for us ALL! No matter how you grow up in a happy or miserable family, we all deserve to be happy and we can all have it. For those who have grown up being happy, they generally only get the sad times when they begin to meet other people outside of their family, unhappy people. They either get bullied, physically or verbally which they do not understand, but then it changes their entire outlook. However, they are happy souls, so if they talk to a parent or friend about this, they can recover very quickly from the sadness they feel. But this does not always happen as when people are bullied, there are generally threats against them, so that they do not tell anyone. They become quiet, solitary and sometimes it is missed that something is wrong.
Healing is what needs to occur, healing from within. Yes they may go a talk to a therapist, but they only deal with the outer emotions and not the deep ones, which is where it all lies. Heal the spirit or soul of a person and the body is healed too. So the outer world, no matter how difficult it may be sometimes, will be easier to deal with. Complicated situations can be neutralized and dealt with easier, especially when you do not take it personally. When you keep a happy demeanor, nothing can push you to lose your cool and let anyone take your power. You are in control of your happiness, remember that. And we all deserve to be happy. Namaste
