I can’t make you happy.
I can’t make anyone happy.
No one can make me happy.
Happiness is an internal quality, and it can only be directed outward.
Unhappiness is exactly opposite.
I can do things that make you unhappy.
I can do things that make everyone unhappy.
Someone can make me unhappy.
Unhappiness, always comes from outside of one’s being.
If you are not grateful for my kindness, then that is not because of me. Your inability to see something nice, something kind, something happy, is because of the unhappiness within you.
You control what comes from within you, just like I control what comes from within me. Just because I have allowed unhappy and bitter thoughts to remain inside of me, does not excuse me from pushing those out.
It is my responsibility to allow the darkenss t9 be consumed by happiness, but I cannot force my own happiness upon you, because it would be coming from outside of you.
Happiness can only come from within…
Day 25. It has been a right, but I had someone tell me today, “I hear the voice of recovery in your words.”
I will make it through another day. I am feeling free, in spite of everything.
