make yourself happy

I’ve come to a place in my life… where I just want to be happy.. and I can only depend on myself for that.  Because in the end.. im the one that will still be here…

Im not saying that as a bad thing. It’s a part of life.   I need to rely on myself for my happy, because when you rely on someone else to fulfill your happy… you will only end up disappointed. Maybe not all the time.. but enough times. 

I have a great man in my life. He makes me all kinds of happy. I have never known a man like him.  But I can’t solely depend on him for happy because there will be a moment here or there where I will be sadly disappointed. Its nothing against him. Its we are just human.

I have two great kids in my life.. I can’t depend on them for my happy. They are my heart and my soul. But they will disappoint me at some point too. Its part of life. We are just humans.

The only thing that I can depend on is myself and my Lord. He makes me strong. He makes me happy.  

Everyone in my life contributes to my happy. I am learning not to solely depend on one person for that. That is too much responsibility for one person to have to hold up.  Because everyone at one point or another will fall short of what I expect, just as I will fall short of their expectations.  You can’t let one person’s disappointment make you completely unhappy. You gotta just chalk it up to life.. focus on something good and move on.

People will never be with you expect them to be. They will only be what they are.  

Make yourself happy.

  1. I agree! I'm a selfish bitch but that's because I've learned the hard way. At one point in my life I put everyone before my own needs and I was always the one that was left short and unhappy.'s me. && in my book there's nothing wrong with that. I'm not religious so no comment there. We all make our own choices in life, no one or nobody is in control of that. Just you.

  2. This is a beautiful and meaningful post. I am really happy to read you have a new person in your life. Keep an open heart!

  3. Great post! Glad you have someone in your life. You deserve being happy.


Let me know what you think... good, bad, and the downright ugly...
