Your Happiness Is Not My Job

Growing up... I loved reading Charles Schulz's "Peanuts" comics.

 

In one strip Lucy asks Charlie Brown...

"Why are we here?"

 

Charlie Brown responds...

"To make others happy."

 

Lucy screams back in Charlie Browns Face...

"Well I'm not happy! Somebody is not doing their job!!!"🤣

 

For such a long time I thought it was my job to make someone else happy.

 

But thinking that way means that it's someone else's job to make me happy.

 

Totally freeing to know that you can just make yourself happy.

 

And this way, enjoy each moment you spend with someone else.

 

Removing the burden from them to be responsible for your happiness.

 

Live in Love and Peace
Rick Syposh💝🙏
