Being happy is always our choice and no one else’s. But we often forget this, so we need to be surrounded with positive people who will remind us.
This is a very common mistake people make—not realizing that they are the only ones responsible for their own happiness. It’s an individual choice. Yet every choice and decision we make in our life is based on our past experiences and the influences of the people we are surrounded by. Therefore, theoretically, if we surround ourselves with better influences and positive people, we will eventually end up making better and greater choices which will ultimately result in happiness.
Choosing to hang out with positive people will be the best decision of your life.
Open yourself to new social connections and welcome such people with joy. They will in the future become the people we will look up to, and eventually we will become just as positive as they are.
To recognize if you are surrounded or not with such people just look if they are practicing gratitude. These people always seek joy. They love communicating and are always open to new connections. They are also very humble and active.
On the other hand just look around you and all the negativity that surrounds you. It is sad, but many people are full of negative energy and negative thoughts. These people are the complete opposite of the positive ones. They only look at the bad things in their lives and concentrate on how everything is so wrong. They are an awful influence and definitely not the people we’d want to be around if our ultimate goal is being happy. These people don’t even smile very often or easily. They are full of stress and are very hard to be friends with or communicate with. They are toxic, and we need to avoid them as much as possible.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is for us to remember and convince ourselves that happiness is there and reachable and all we need to do is choose to be happy.
Just make a choice and strive for it.
Choose the people you are surrounded by and let them be the ones to remind you of happiness and not the ones that bring you down. Recognize someone and make a connection with them. Positive people will lead us not only to happiness but greater success. And you deserve it just like we all do.
