Are you outsourcing your happiness?
If your happiness is dependent upon how others are treating you, and your current circumstances, then your happiness is solely reliant on external conditions.
If this is the case, then you may fall into a pattern of allowing your inner state to be dictated by everyone and everything else. Under these conditions your happiness could prove elusive or unstable and you will always find an excuse as to why you’re not happy.
When peace and happiness rest within us we are no longer so affected by the actions of others, and we’re better placed to deal with situations as they arise.
Happiness is not something we find on the outside. When we remove the blockages and take back our power, we find that happiness is our birth right and our natural state.
If you start to notice this pattern in yourself then well done because the realisation means that you are already on the journey of self-awareness.
