Be Your Own Happy Pill

By: Abielle in Lifestyle

How can you really truly be happy? Are you happy only when you’re with your friends? Will you only be happy if your boyfriend texts you? Are you only happy when you get praise for the good job you’ve done? Are you waiting for that ‘special’ person to make you happy?

Most of the time, people rely their happiness on other people, which shouldn’t be the case. In order to truly be happy, you should base your happiness on yourself. How do you do that? Here are some ways that could help you change your viewpoint when it comes to happiness.



Be Independent. Be independent in the things you do. As much as possible only ask for help when you’re 100% sure you cannot do it on your own. And trust me, most of the time, you can! – By doing that, you get the sense of accomplishment, knowing that you were able to do it on your own. Now imagine all the things you could do on your own and dwell on the thought. Because most of the times in life, you have to do things on your own.

Don’t hesitate to do what you’ve always wanted to do. Be a go-getter. Don’t wait for other people to accompany you just so you could buy that cupcake you’ve been craving for. You don’t have to cancel a day in the mall just because your friend couldn’t make it. Go ahead and watch that movie regardless if your friends know about it or not. Go out and have a date with yourself.

Don't rely on other people for your happiness. Don’t be the type of person who thinks ‘My day isn’t complete without his text messages’ or ‘She didn’t agree to be my prom date, I’m not going anymore’ or the most popular one ‘He broke up with me, my life is over!’ Go and do something about your day. Read a book, watch a movie, go out with your family, sing, dance, and learn a new piano piece. And so she didn’t agree to be your prom date. That doesn’t mean you’re no longer allowed to have a great night with your friends. Would you rather stay home and mope around wasting your time for someone who doesn't even bother about you? And of course, don’t ever go into a relationship wherein you make the other person you whole life. Because you’re bound to be heart broken, and when you do get heartbroken, that would mean your life ‘ends’ for you. People should be considered as the bonus features in your life. Yes they make things exciting and wonderful but once they decide to stop and get out from your life, you should be able to say … “Well, what do you know! I’m still happy!”
