Your Joy Does Not Depend On Other People

  • by

The myth: The people around us are responsible for our joy and happiness.
This misconception is rooted in our childhood and transmitted throughout the growth process. As children, it is our parents’ or guardians’ sole responsibility to ensure our happiness.

The adults take on the role of acquiring presents for every birthday and every Christmas holiday. They get us our favorite ice-cream and make our favorite dish every odd day. During this early stage of our development, our joy is in their hands and we have little control over it, hence the tantrums we get to throw when things do not go our way.
