“IT IS NOT EASY TO FIND HAPPINESS IN OURSELVES, AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO FIND IT ELSEWHERE.” -Agnes Repplier
I have a saying that you cannot try to fill your bucket from someone else’s well! We each need to have found joy in our lives, or we will spend our days trying to fulfill our lives with the false belief that having a mate at our side is the answer to our happiness. First off, that is way too much power to give to someone else. You have the power to make your world what you want it to be. We all have to know that truth, honor that truth and act on that truth! Besides, that is way too much responsibility to put on our mate… to keep us happy! Relationships are hard enough. But when one person feels the enormous load of holding someone else’s happiness in their hands, then the relationship can never be an even give and take relationship. It then becomes, one person giving and the other taking. So ask yourself a few questions. Are you taking all necessary steps to fulfill your own dreams and make yourself happy? Or are you relying on someone else to fill those dreams for you? We do not walk this path alone. We all deserve to be in love, have a partner and share our worlds together. But when we are living their dreams, their lives, we can and will never be happy.
