Are you comfortable in your own skin?
A lot of people are looking outside themselves for happiness.
They see other people that are happy and there is a internal envy that says, “I want what that person has because that person looks happy! Their happiness is something that I want”
The happiest people out there, I guarantee you, are comfortable in your own skin. They have both shoes.
There’s no need for them to look beyond themselves for happiness. They might have a very nice family and a very nice home, but you hear stories all the time about people that “supposedly” have nothing, or that they came from poverty, or that they lived during the Depression as children, and they had few possessions, and little money.
And yet they didn’t know envy.
They were very happy, and many talk about those being the happiest times of their life, because they were happy in their own skin, content with what they had.
So I think that’s kind of a key of what I wanted to say:
You can wake up and have a great day being happy in your own skin and not unfulfilled with what you don’t have
You can learn from the people that have “nothing”, and are apparently a lot happier than you are when you wake up in the morning.
