I admit that once in my life, I almost considered myself to be trash because of how easy it was for people to leave me, to dump me. But now i realize that I have grown because of the very same people. It won't be easy to let go and it won't be easy to forget because these people have already been a part of me.

One of my greatest fears ever since was being left out; its so frustrating that i tend to become an unknown creature trying to fit in and please everybody else. Now i can say that im used to it but i still do expect the worst to come. I believe that in this same journey that everyone is taking, we are likely to encounter different struggles to determine our strength.

Before i try to hold on even if i know better that i must let go and i'd be better off that way.

Now here's what i want to say:

I am glad that you opened my heart and my mind. Before, i was afraid to lose you because i thought i'd never find somebody that would be as good enough as you. Truth is, it really is not possible but i could find even better people. Sometimes we tend to forget that there are still other people around us which do care; we become narrow minded for a moment then and think that nobody does. Yes, its the same old drama but you never realize it unless you have been the one in that situation.

Its funny that i always give the same advice to people whenever unexpected and unwanted events come into their lives, that everything has its purpose, but can't hardly apply it to my own.

I can never be the same person through the years. People change. But i want you to put in mind that when you want to come back, you'd always have that same old friend waiting for you. I have made a vow that for everyone, i would be a friend til the very last of my breath. People might think that its not possible given that people do change so it is not impossible that i will. I have my own conviction and that makes me different, that makes my vow different.

To see people around me happy is enough and to bring joy to their lives gives the meaning for my life. I found my purpose and i found the things which i live up for.

Have you figured out how to achieve happiness? Or, does happiness seem to be eluding you? A tease. There one moment, gone the next.

If you wish your life could be happier, if you want to feel more joy on a regular basis, here are a few ideas that you might want to consider.

  • Some people think about the pursuit of happiness in a topsy-turvy way. They think that getting what they want will bring about the desired result. And they may be right....but only for a short period of time. As I’m sure you know, the thrill of getting something new in your life wanes rather quickly. Hence, if you want happiness to be a life-affirming position rather than a quick high, you must know that happiness comes about not by getting what you want but by wanting what you have.

  • Another way of saying this is that we are happy, not because all of our wishes are fulfilled, but because we experience what we have in a positive manner. We all know people (I hope you’re not one of them) who are often unhappy because their focus is on the negative – what they don’t have, what is not perfect, what went wrong or, even if things are good, they spoil the feeling by waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  • Other people think that improving their lives will make them happier, but ignore the need to improve themselves. They act as though life is a buffet. You get to pick what you like, leaving behind what you don’t like without enduring any consequences for ignoring all that is distasteful to you. They think that you should never have to deal with what’s unappetizing. Never have to experience what doesn’t agree with you. Never have to attend to what makes you feel uncomfortable.

  • Then when life hits them with the unexpected, the unwanted, the undesirable, they wail, “It’s not supposed to happen this way!” No life, however, can be lived without some dreadful things happening to a person. And yet, we can still be happy. Happiness, however, is not an equal opportunity attribute. It is more likely to be experienced by those who invest in their own growth. Those who develop resiliency. Those who strengthen their backbone. Those who don’t sweat the small stuff. Those who learn to disagree without being disagreeable. Those who realize they don’t always have to be in control. Those who relish experiences that make them happy while minimizing the experiences that don’t.
