Take Control of Your Happiness

The mistake many of us make is to expect someone to come into our lives and make us happy. The key to happiness is to realize that no owes us any obligation to make us happy. We must take control over our lives and do not rely too  heavily on someone else for happiness. Often after a breakup people hold on to the hurt and pain of the failed relationship. Unhappiness becomes a way of life and there is no moving forward.

We have to understand that people will disappoint us, they will betray and hurt us. But we must refuse to let them take our joy. Promise yourself that you will choose happiness in spite of situations that are beyond your control. Trust God and know that he will not allow the person who cause you pain to live happily ever after while you live in misery.

You know this brings to memory something which happened some years ago. There was this man who was with his girlfriend since they were back in high school. She bore him four children. He left her when their last child was about four months old and married another woman. He said she was making him not able to save any money. He kept making babies…what did he expect.

Any way he went on with his new life with the christian woman he had married taking better care of her two children than he was taking care of his own children. I guess happily ever after was all he saw on horizon. However it was not long after…maybe a year when he got in trouble at work  He got fired from his job and attempted suicide. My point is you cannot expect to live a happy life by causing pain to others. What you give is what you will eventually receive.  So Live, Love, Forgive and be Happy.

A Wish for You

May your skies be filled with sunshine
Each day your whole life through,
May health and happiness be yours
Day in and out anew.
May each rainbow that you seek to find
Not e’er be sought in vain,
May each cherished goal you have in sight
Be yours to have and gain.
May hopes and dreams that you possess
One day for you come true,
May God walk always by your side
And light the way for you.

Relationships


Some people rely heavily on others for their happiness.  They invest a lot into their relationships and sometimes put themselves in a position where they become vulnerable.  Some people entire life revolve around their partners, they make them the center of their universe; they love them more than life itself.  This is a rather unhealthy and sometimes dangerous situation for when a relationship goes sour, these are the people who have difficulty coping.  Some even contemplate suicide at the prospect of having to live without their partner if a relationship ends.

It is good and healthy to love someone, however it is very important for you to love yourself also.  Never rely on someone else to see to your happiness because you may be setting yourself up for disappointment.  Don’t allow yourself to get so wrapped up in someone else that life becomes meaningless without them.  Don’t ever contemplate taking your life because the man or woman you are with decides they don’t want to be with you anymore, because the only loser will be you.  When you end your life they will continue to live theirs.  Their life is not going to end just because you are no longer around!

Broken relationships can result in a lot of heartache and pain but it wont last forever.  When one door closes another one opens.  Keep a positive mind and who knows someone better will come along.  Life is precious so try and live it to the fullest.
