Do you know how many people tend to just make themselves happy?
I do the same thing sometimes, but lately more often than not, I find myself doing things that make others happy. I find myself putting other’s happiness above my own.
And believe me, sometimes it hurts. Why does it hurt? Because I’m giving of myself to others constantly, but they aren’t giving back.
The thing is, when you give of yourself to others it will cost something of you. Were others to give of themselves to you, you would find yourself filled.
That is the world you must build around yourself. It will be long, and it will be difficult, but it is possible. In order to get others to change, you first have to change yourself.
Change yourself and you’ll give others around you permission to change as well. So make others happy, and eventually you will run into others like you and change those around you as well.
