Respect The Happy: Nourish a Happy Person Near You

I respect the happy people. I admire and praise them, and I surely will dump my chronically unhappy friend if my happy friend is in need. Harsh? No. Happiness to me is a product of living in a accordance with your own values, positive thinking, an open disposition, and the optimistic resilience that these traits create. Furthermore, I know it when I see it. It is important to note that the opposite of happiness is not depression, but unhappiness (depression is a state beyond the subject of this post, and people suffering a trauma should always be nurtured with love). There is so much to learn and enjoy from the more upbeat individual, incredibly our attention is regularly allocated to the glum.

Unhappiness can become comfortable. The gloomy seem to criticize everything and nurture close to nothing. They are never too impressed and superficially hardly hurt. They defend the constant dissatisfaction in their lives, but judge the changes made by others. There are people who support unhappiness as a sign of depth to some extent. Ultimately they prefer to see that life is cruel, specifically to them. Happiness is a feeling, and depth can be found in whichever perspective you take. Fundamentally we all know this person. If we are honest enough, we, at some point have been this person. Then we can see that happiness is a choice. A choice between being heavy and being light. Happiness is real, achievable and it is foremost a product of your actions and thoughts.

The happy are neglected. No one seems to check up on you if you are a generally upbeat individual, and hardly anyone seems to care too much about your feelings. Happy people are not praised enough. It takes courage, selflessness, discipline, and resilience to be happy. Would you like those traits to rub off on you? Spend time with a happy person, we all know attitudes are contagious.

Happier folks make it a better place for all of us. I love a warm hearted enthusiastic person. Happiness may be a feeling but, often It's medicine for others. When I'm around happy people I feel more enthused, energetic, involved, and present. It is no surprise that happy people have been proven to be more social, helpful, and more likely to donate to a cause than gloomier folks. Studies show that happier people are more involved in community affairs, they are better at work, and have better sex lives. This makes happiness a selfless act. A happier person makes for a better world, making your happiness a priority is the greatest gift you can give to everyone around you.
The Happiness Affect
Courage is something you don't notice about people with sunny dispositions. Deciding to be happy leads to change and change is scary for most of us. The ability to find satisfaction is strengthened by your openness to change. Change encourages us to question our beliefs, our values, and truly be honest with ourselves. The truth about our unhealthy actions and beliefs are hard facts to swallow. Discipline is key for happiness, because the ability to stay upbeat and positive in times of inner instability (questioning) can only be achieved through practice. Eventually the answer to some of these questions emerge. This courage and discipline enable happy people to stand by their choices, even at the threat of criticism. Happier people are not only more likely to stand their own ground, they can also help you stand on yours.

I feel we must all encourage what we want to see more of, I want to see more happy people. We are part of a collective whole, the happiness of one soon sprinkles to another. Let a positive person know you appreciate them today. Most importantly cultivate your own happiness. You will be making the world a better place, becoming a better friend, family member, coworker, and random stranger on the train. In particular, you will be making me happier.

  2. "making your happiness a priority is the greatest gift you can give to everyone around you." I had never thought of happiness as a gift until I got pregnant. I started thinking of the interconnectedness between feelings and health. Reading your post makes me realize that happiness is the greatest gift that I can give my daughter. Thank you! Keep writing!!! I am now following you. Please follow me at

  3. Beautiful and wise post! I'm glad you put the caveat at the beginning for people who suffer from depression... their struggle is indeed different. BUT, for many of us, we can choose to be happy and it does make SUCH a difference in your life and the lives of those around you. I truly began to embrace that fact few years ago and life is SO MUCH MORE FUN!!! As you say, hang out with a happy person and learn it from them. I did. :)

  4. You are really thinking big. Love the way you say your thoughts. It's true and I totally agree with. Happiness can also attract all the positive things and vibes around us. :)

  5. love this you do know how to reach people with your writing!! I agree unhappy people ( the ones that you can tell enjoy being unhappy) quickly become boring. I do not need any boring in my life!!!!

  7. That's a beautiful way to spend a few minutes on a Sunday evening.

    I love your sentiments. If only more people would read and actually do that.

  8. Hi Raimi,

    Nice thought provoking post , you have very well expressed the the state of happiness.
    But I think true happiness lies in giving i.e helping those who are sunned by others Karma and are suffering , if we can bring back the smile to their faces our inner self will itself enlighten us to do better each day and this happiness is what we need ..true happiness if not discovered here n there but its is just felt and its magic is amazing.

    Thanks for sharing your thought :)

    Take care
    Keep smiling.

    reading this made me happy

  10. Nice post. We must all make it a point to be happy. I believe every person has an indwelling potential to be happy... but we often allow the circumstances of life to deny us our happiness. Yeah, stuff happens sometimes, but life must still go on and the only way life will go on is when we make it point to be happy no matter what.

    Thanks for making me *happy;)* I hope that makes you happy too. O now it's becoming like a "Happy Network" - You make me happy, I make someone else happy, and that person makes another happy...and it goes on and on. Blessings to you. I have a similar post on my blog titled: How You See Yourself is How Others See You... I'll love your thought on it. I'm following your blog both via Google connect and NetworkedBlogs. Stay blessed!

  11. yes. your blog is good. spreading love and happiness ya
