People get so busy looking for approval from others that they don’t seek to be happy with themselves for who they are. There’s a line between making the others around you happy and making yourself happy.
A world where you seek to please everyone around yourself, is a world where you will begin to completely lose yourself in something that isn’t you. In order to take care of the others around you, you need to realize the simple need to take care of yourself first. Before worrying about others, you have to be healthy and happy with yourself or you won’t be able to make others healthy and happy.
It’s a concept that falls into basically every category and aspect of life. From work relationships, to family relationships, to friends and intimate relationships. Everyone must make themselves happy to at least an extent before they are able to pursue happy and healthy relationships with others.
