The truth is that you can do a lot to show people that you care.  You can be proud of their accomplishments. You can shower them with gifts. You can express all the love in the world. You can even provide tough love to help them grow as an individual. You can express through hugs, kisses and handshakes. You could do all of the above and so much more but what you can not do is make a person happy. Happiness is the responsibility of oneself.

Sure it makes people happy to know that others care. That others feel proud. That others are willing to gift them with praise and material things. And of course who doesn’t like a good hug, kiss or handshake? But it is  the responsibility of ones self to obtain their peak happiness.

Person Inside You

“But don’t forget who you really are. And I’m not talking about your so-called real name. All names made up by someone else, even the one your parents gave you. You know who you really are. When you’re alone at night, looking up at the stars, or maybe lying in your bed in total darkness, you know that nameless person inside you.” -Louis Sachar

I love this quote. Think about the raw truth in the message. You can take away the name given to you and change it to whatever you’d like but when you are alone with yourself that is truly who you are. Nobody really ever knows the real you. You can tell someone they know you more then anyone and that may be true but only with the exception of you. It’s in those moments of solitude that speak the most to anyone. When you have those conversations with yourself. When you look in the mirror and reflect on the soul looking back at you. Who is the person inside you? Do you know that the person? Something to think about…
