Do you try hard to make people around you happy? Or you don't really care that much? Do you sacrifice a bit of yourself when you make others happy?

Hello wondericequeen, I am a simple person and quite happy go lucky *laughs* Whenever I feel happy, I want people around me to feel the same too. But I never try hard to make others feel happy. As long as I don't hurt them and they accept me as my usual self, it is more than enough *smiles*

Hello wondericequeen, Oh, I am not disappearing yet *laughs* I am really busy lately as my husband is scheduled to come back soon and my son got chicken pox for the whole week last week. He celebrated his first birthday on Sept 2, and I was busy preparing for the birthday celebration while taking care of him. Well, miss all of you here ...

I try and make the people that I care for happy and if that means sacrificing a little bit of myself then I don't mind. Of course I wouldn't do something against my beliefs or anything like that but I do believe that the little things make the biggest difference and try to do those.

I know what you meant! Yes, I don't mind losing a bit of myself if I really want that someone to be happy. But if I have to go too far, then, better not *laughs*.

I agree, especially since there are some people really not worth going very far for in the first place, lol.

yeah, specially those people that are dear to me, my husband, my parents, my siblings and thier children. I don't care sacrificing a bit of myself just so I can make them happy. One of my nephew turned 7 this August and he requested a pokemon cake with specific character and even it cost me more than the usual cake,bought him that one and the smile and hugs and kisses I got from him are priceless.

Yes, I do. I am a happy person and like to see other people around me happy. Sometimes grumpy people do not like this, but I don't care. I won't stay around grumpy people. First I will try to make them happy, but if they truly do not want to be happy then I go somewhere else. My belief is that happiness and good health are tied together, and people who are unhappy or cause unhappiness in others cannot stay healthy for long. This does not mean that if someone has suffered the loss of a loved one or is ill that they do not have the right to grieve or be sad, but people who have every reason to be happy should not drag everyone else down just to be overbearing and attract pitiful attention to themselves.

Right, very good attitude! Hope my mom thinks like you *laughs*. Anyway, I am not sure why people are overly reacting about certain things. Like I have a friend and she always complains about something. I tried to make her feel better before, but nah! Now I just avoid her most of the time because I am tired of hearing sad things/ complains. And she is easily sick. I definitely agree with you that good health and happiness are tied together!

I do try to make others happy. SOmethimes I succeed without much effort. I am always very optimistic...I have to be. I do sacrifice...sometimes my stress level is through the roof when dealing with my life and taking on others' problems as well. But the outcome is usually good...if I can help them I will. I do care a lot because it hurts me when my friends or family are saddened. Even if I can't help them with their immediate issue...I will try other tactics like doing something with them to get their mind off of it wether it be going to lunch or just talking on the phone as long as they want. It really depends on the person as to how I would handle it.

I try to make my husband happy by cooking something nice that he would like. I try to make my cat happy by bringing home different flavors of cat food and giving him catnip (once in a while). I do little things for others to make them happy.

I never try hard to make people happy,I think a person's happiness shoud be natural.Don't make it painstakingly.WHen a person is unhappy . we shoudn't make him happy.If you did so ,he will feel unhappy more.
