I try my hardest, to make all those around me happy,,,why is it,,,,,more times than not,,,my happiness,is overlooked,,or Im taken for granted? I don't ask for much...a lil hug,,,a smile...a few minutes of thier day shared with me,,,,what am I doing wrong?

To be held, is all I ask......

Do not worry over other's happiness, you cannot make it for them.  As for your own, this you can.  Let go of expectations and give freely of your heart with no returns required.  You will be amazed at the returns.  Happiness is gained from letting go of wanting more than you already have and appreciating what already sits upon your step.  From there, growing your own outpouring of love will in time flood back upon you.  Promise.  Try reading the Dalai Lama's book "The art of Happiness" He is one wise and very happy man.  You need not be a buddhist to appreciate his wisdom.

  Love well and may Happiness be yours --
Susan

Happiness isn't something that happens to you, it's created from within you.  Joy is a state of mind.

When I begin to feel like that, I recite the prayer of St. Francis. Hopefully it can help you feel better too! I think that it is a good way to think if things, even if you aren't religous.


Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is error, I may bring truth;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.


Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee
