People don’t exist to make you happy.
This may seem pretty basic. On the surface, we’re all aware of the truth of that statement, but I’d like to encourage you to sit with it for a minute. Really consider how often we get irritated or aggravated with others because they don’t do or say what we want them to, or how we want them to. How often do we base our happiness in externals?
I know that for myself, the answer is way too often.
On the flip side of the coin, how do we feel when people get angry with us for not being/doing/saying what they want? Guilty? Angry?
Is your anger when others don’t ‘make you happy’ related to the need you feel to make others happy?
