No one is capable of caring about your happiness more than you. No one hops out of bed in the morning knocking themselves over in an effort to secure your well-being. Unless you make it happen, happiness won’t just happen.
Even if they are compassionate and sincere, don’t shift the responsibility for your personal fulfillment to anyone else. Cooperate and collaborate with those who have your best interest in mind, but always choose to be the primary determining factor when it comes to your inner peace.
As far as happiness is concerned, let people love you, but don’t let them lead you. That is, allow others to help you, but don’t let that be a substitute for helping yourself.
