Are you constantly searching, asking people who seem happy, reading articles and watching videos on how to be happy? If so, you’re certainly not alone. Online search engines get millions of people asking this question, and the internet is full of promises that this strategy or that formula will deliver you to a place of lasting happiness. Yet, many miss the main point: they never even touch on the fact that the real key to happiness with others is happiness with yourself.

Become your own best friend and learn to be happy with yourself. When you like yourself, the things other people say and do that may have previously sent you into a negative mood or frantic response will just roll off your back. You are OK with or without other people when you are happy with yourself. And since similar energy is attracted like a magnet, you will attract amazing, positive people into your life when you are happy with yourself, that you never would have if you were a downward spiral of negativity. You’ll attract people who are also happy, and not waiting for someone else to tell them they’re OK; people who are secure enough to like you and love you for who you truly are — because they are at peace with who they truly are.
