“Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself.”—Alice Walker
I love every one of Alice Walker’s quotes as they have so much truth to them. This one is no exception!
In my opinion happiness is a state of mind that comes from within someone. That’s why it’s only yourself that can make yourself happy.
If you wait for other people to make you happy you never will be. You have to go out there and do it for yourself!
This is such a lovely and relatable quote. I will print it out and hang it in my room!
I totally agree with this quote. We are responsible for our own happiness.
I love this one. We often rely our own happiness to others.
The quote speaks the truth about happiness. One shouldn’t based his or her happiness on others.
Nice and reasonable quote she has made. Happiness is a thing of the mind and free to get. That’s for this thoughtful post.
I agree but it is easier said than done. At times people may need a reason to keep going or to be happy. That said, yes you can make yourself happy butt is it not lacking? I mean who is that for? Why are we even here if not to meet and be with ones we care about?
I like this message because it reminds you to be self-reliant. Loving thy self is the best way to overcome adversity and find contentment in life.
I agree, no onoe is reponsible for the hapiness or sadness from others, We better take the actions to make us happy
Happiness is in us not in things I always try to remember this at all times and it has helped a lot.
We hold our happiness in ourselves. We don’t need anyone to be happy. We just need to find it within ourselves.
Thanks for the quote, Tom! I believe that happiness is free and not to be hidden! Let it radiate all around you
This is very true. Only you can determine what your true happiness will be.
We can only make ourselves because nobody owed us anything not even our happiness. The world is in our hands and we just need to make it a better place for ourselves.
