Have you ever met a person you could pour your heart to in just your first few meets? That is the kind of person I met yesterday. We are members of the same Buddhist organization and I've met so many different kinds of people in the organization..and though there is a little something to learn from everybody, no one has inspired me as much as she has.
My conversation with her made me realize that happiness really is a choice. But, how many of us really do believe it? Don't we all get sad when things don't go our way? And don't we all end up linking our happiness to other people?
But what we don't realize is 'hope and joy aren't things you wait around for someone else to give you.' Basing your happiness on someone else only makes you needy. When a relationship goes sour..with a friend or lover, it is always easy to blame the other person. But we can't really clap with one hand, right? We need to stop crying over it and blaming the other person for it and take responsibility of our own action. You can't change the world, but you sure can change yourself and your environment will respond accordingly to you.
Know your vices and change them and be sure not to make the same mistakes in your next relationship. Don't compare your life with anyone else's. Your life will move forward at its own pace. Don't be jealous of others achievements. Be happy for them and appreciate their achievements. Jealously takes you nowhere. Be positive and comfortable in your own skin. Be secure being you cos as they say, you are best at being you. Also, know your strengths. 'One's uniqueness can be a source of strength'-Dr Mary Catherine Bateson.
Learn to love yourself. Only then can you be truly happy and can someone really love you.
'In life, there are also rainy days, cloudy days and stormy days. No matter what happens, however, it is important that you continue shining brightly as suns of happiness.'- Daisaku Ikeda
