Be a reason
Is your happiness solely dependent on something else? If yes, then stop it immediately because you are punishing yourself.
Having reliant on others for your happiness is the biggest crime that you are committing. Whoever you depend on for your joy, might not stay with you forever, you will have to move forward with your life. Will you stop living your life? There is no denying that happiness is most when shared, but it does not mean that you stop creating your own.
Happiness is not a destination; instead, it’s a journey. It is present in every moment. Live in the moment and be a reason for your happiness, and then share it with others.
