Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty. But learn to be happy alone. Rely upon your own energies, and so not wait for, or depend on other people.
"Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty. But learn to be happy alone. Rely on your own energies, and so not wait for, or depend on other people." -Professor Thomas Davidson
So true. If you're only trying to make other people happy you become miserable. Your relationship should be about making your boyfriend happy. Not making the other people around you happy.
You have to be careful how you help people. Rely on the Lord - you can't save them.
you can't make everybody happy all of the time
People say find who makes you happy and love them forget about everything else... Sometimes that's not the case sometimes you actually can't be with someone no matter how much you or the other person wants it.. Sometimes there is no other choice!!!
wonderfulyou: Don’t rely on other people to make you happy. Your happiness depends entirely on you. Your life does not lie in the hands of the people around you, or in the situation you happen to find yourself in at this moment. You are not a victim on your circumstances, but rather a powerful being with a choice. The question is: do you allow every ripple of the sea that is this life turn you upside down? Or can you find peace, knowing there is an ocean of calm beneath the surface of your life situation? As long as you look at the world from the eyes if a victim, victimized is what you will be. Stop feeling sorry for yourself - get up and change something! You can’t count on people to always treat you well, or for the universe to always hand you the cards that you want. You need to find a place inside of yourself where the ever changing ebb and flow of life does not dictate your fundamental sense of peace. Practice peace, and peacefulness will come your way. Practice love, mindfulness, gratitude… And this is what your life will be made up of. You are an ocean of love. Stop treading water and enjoy the swim! #yogaeverydamnday #wisdom #love
Truth: "You can't control other people. You can only control your reactions to them."
You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
"You can't change how people feel about you so don't try. Just live your life and be happy."

"You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people
I can't help but wonder what other people see in you to think you are such a wonderful human being. I see the total opposite. You are a sneaky liar that uses people & hurts them for anything that will benefit you....
I'm glad this happens to other people. Seriously the way they make dresses makes me so mad. I really can't wear any of them.
Keep people in your life that truly love you, activate you, encourage you, inspire you, enhance you and make you happy.
