I know it is cliché to say, but one way to be happy is to be happy with YOU first! Yes, psychiatrists and psychologists know exactly what they are talking about when it comes to this and those extra dollars you are paying, is not for nothing… lol.
When you love yourself first, you are then able to love someone else. When you love yourself first, you will not put up with unnecessary issues or drama that others may bring to your life. When you love yourself first, any hate aimed towards you; any negativity will not stick. You know the old adage “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will bounce back off of me.” Okay, that is not exactly what it says, but you get my drift. We should love ourselves with everything we have and all that we are; body and soul.
Now, the question is what is next? Happiness & Relationships or Relationships & Happiness can go either way or hand in hand; depending on your situation and circumstances. If you are single, you can be happy. You can be happy with your achievements and with everything you have going on in your life. I have seen this happen on so many occasions. You may not be romantically involved with someone, but to obtain happiness without being in a relationship is doable. Again, it goes back to you loving yourself first. If you are single, take this time to pursue your life’s goals; things you would like to achieve or accomplish. If you want your own business, go for it! If you want to own your home, go for it! If you would like to finish school, go for it! Happiness can be obtained and having a partner does not make or break you as a person especially if you are already happy with yourself. In pursuing your dreams and goals, that love interest will eventually sneak up on you. But, do not make that a priority in your life.
