Is happiness and energy derived from within yourself
17 Oct 07
Balasri, I have noticed that some ppl are generally happy and some are generally sad. Some, even amidst bitterness in life, are happy with positive spirit and some having everything still yearn for happiness. Happiness is essentially that of state of mind that we are born with or inherit. In that regard, I am a happy kind of person, who would love to shrug off bleak things in life. But for that I need support. I derive my happiness from loved ones, my near and dear ones whose well being is the source of my state of sanity. When they are not happy, I cannot rejoice. My happiness is directly proportional to their happiness. That's how I am!! smiles...

Offcourse happiness and energy is derived within us..only when we feel happiness we can enjoy it and nothing outside can affect it..similarly when someone is worrying us its us who need to control our emotions and never allow it to change our behaviour which results in loss of our energy and happiness..finally being human beings i feel we have great control on ourselves.

I'd like to believe that hapiness and positive energy comes from within myself...but the truth is that I am sometimes affected by outside elements especially people who are close to me (spouse, parents,etc.).But generally I gain happiness from within and outsiders do not really affect me. I just hope I can also move away from the mood swings of people who are important to me. I think it will take a lot of work on my part for that to happen.

It derived totally and entirely within myself, I must have strong guts for this matter and I cannot rely on others to achieve, foster and maintain it in my life. Happiness and energy in our life actually very unpredictable as it can come and go unintentionally.
