How to be a good friend and warning signs to avoid being a bad one. Some of us get comfortable in close friendships (which is a good thing,) but it can also serve for us to slowly become inconsiderate of our friends and how they feel.
How often do you consciously try to be selfless and focus on someone else’s happiness? It’s difficult to remember that the entire world does not revolve around us and that we need to give and put into the world just as much as we expect to receive. Happiness is the universal currency and you can choose how you spend it.
It is easy to buy into the idea that there are a lot of happy people just running around. Then you tell yourself that’s who you need to be too! There has to be a secret. Why am I not happy but X and Y are? What do they have that I don’t?
This makes you go on a wild chase for happiness. You want to learn how to be happy, but you’re not!
Then you start asking yourself the wrong questions.
