Do What Makes You Happy Regardless

The thing everyone should realize is that the key to happiness is being happy by yourself and for yourself.

Do What Makes You Happy Regardless

It seems like it is a simple message. Be happy. Do the things that make you happy. It is easier said than done. But judgment and hearing opinions of others get in the way of you trying to do the things that make you happy. We are so caught up in making sure others don't get hurt or we care too much about what others will say about our choices.

I want to point this out to you. People will still judge you no matter what you choose to do. That's how people are. They're going to hate you for so many reasons, even if they have to make up one because that's something they do. They will always try to find a reason to take your happiness away from you. You can't control that. But you can control yourself.

Don't get on their level because you will never find your happiness if you do. Happiness is not found by belittling others to build yourself up. Happiness is not found in picking on others. Happiness is not found in hating others because they are different from you.

We think we know people and we are so quick to make those judgments.

You don't know what they're going through. We will continue to hate a person until something tragic happens and that's when we will decide to be kind. Why does it take for circumstances like that for you to be kind? You will never know what a person is going through. All of us have faked smiles. So why would you put down people when you don't even know them?

I want you to do what makes you happy regardless of what people have to say. I know you have been in my shoes where you have felt unhappy because you cared about people's opinions. You cared about them too much because you were trying to avoid them searching reasons to put you down. You can't satisfy everyone. Do what makes you happy.

Don't listen to what they have to say as little as possible. Put your phone away. Go to the gym. Drink some tea or coffee. Do the little things that make you happy matter.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
