Quote of the day

"But O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man's eyes."
-William Shakespeare
When you look through someone else's eyes, you will see that different things make others happy. While a hug might make you happy, it might not make someone else happy. That other person might be happy when someone talks to them, but that might not be something that makes you happy. Look through other peoples' eyes, because then you can do something to make them happy. Even if you absolutely hate doing it, do it to make them happy. For example, some people feel loved and happy when other people do service for them. Sometimes, that means unloading the dishwasher for them. Other people feel happy when you care for them. Sometimes that means giving extensively long back rubs. Look through their eyes and see what makes them happy, then do it. Don't try to do something that makes you happy to them, because it could possibly not be their favorite thing. If you like hugs and they don't, don't hug them. Strive to make others happy before you make yourself happy.
