“Happiness comes from within. It is not dependent on external things or on other people. You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security and happiness depend on the behavior and actions of other people. Never give your power to anyone else.”
― Brian L. Weiss
This is what I’ve found. Basically, it’s all about taking whatever actions will make you happy first (even if they’re not what you want to do) and being happy with what you have.
