Everybody is thirsting to find happiness in life. More often than not, a lot of people aren’t happy unless a certain person behaves a certain way, or unless a certain situation works out just the way they want it to. We are so used to being unhappy because we let our happiness depend on other people and situations; there are just so many ways that we put unrealistic expectations on people and rely on them to keep us happy.
But one of the most important lessons I have learned is that I cannot count on someone else to make me happy. I alone can make me happy. God has given us the ability to take responsibility of our own happiness.
So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. (Ecclesiastes 3:12 NLT)
