Would it be shallow of me to create a blog article that is solely about my happiness? Maybe, but I’m going to do it anyway.
I’m in a relationship! Can you believe that? A full-fledged, healthy, beautiful and loving relationship. I know, it’s hard to believe but I’m blessed and with this relationship I have been gifted an additional layer of happiness. See, I was happy alone and now I’m happy with someone else as well.
But, let me repeat that one more time for those in the back.
I was happy – alone!
I was content all by myself and it was then that God decided to bless me with this relationship – not before. Many of you believe that a relationship will make you happy but a relationship cannot pull you out of your misery and place you into a season of joy. Your happiness should not be dependent upon the arrival or departure of others.
Truth be told, I’ve never been this happy before and yes, making him happy does make me happy but my internal joy was already present – as was his.
Your happiness is your responsibility.
Stop forcing this job onto others and take accountability. Furthermore, be careful about the things that you believe are needed for happiness. If you think you need more money, or a bigger house, or a bigger butt to be happy – you’re wrong! Materialisms will not bring true, internal joy, they will provide moments of happiness but not the full package.
I deserve this man and I deserve to experience healthy, selfless love. I’m going to keep this happiness, spread it around, frolic in it and thrive in it. I wish the same for you.
