Happiness is not based on your circumstances, but on a decision you make. – Unknown
Many times, we think that it is the situation that gives us a reason to be happy. It is important to understand that happiness is not based on your circumstances. You would not have every situation in your favor. A person will brag on it if he sees nothing other than negativity.
However, if you are positive at heart, it will become easier for you to see the good things amidst all the negativities. There are people, though not many, who accept the reality and no matter how things around them get worse, they will still manage to hold that smile on their faces.
It is never the situation that determines our happiness. All that matters is whether or not you actually choose to be happy. Despite the different circumstances that we face in our lives, it is our choice that makes the reason for being happy.
Not all people can actually relate themselves to that fine one reason for happiness despite having a thousand reasons for being duped in sorrow. If we ourselves want to live a life at the mercy of circumstances and emotions, we will continue living an unhappy life, no matter what circumstance it is!
Therefore, it is not the situation that decides our happiness but our own motif towards our lives. Happiness is a choice and it depends on the environment that we create for ourselves. It does not depend on other people or the way the situations around us are!
If we ourselves will focus on being happy, we would easily be able to look at the things that we own. On the contrary, if we choose to be unhappy, no matter how things get, we will still keep on focusing on our miseries and remain unhappy.
We don’t need other people’s approval to be happy, happiness is a feeling that comes from within and we have none other than ourselves to hold responsible for the same.
