  1. 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.

  2. We hold our happiness in ourselves. We don’t need anyone to be happy. We just need to find it within ourselves.

  3. I agree, no onoe is reponsible for the hapiness or sadness from others, We better take the actions to make us happy

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. Nice and reasonable quote she has made. Happiness is a thing of the mind and free to get. That’s for this thoughtful post.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.
