Two years ago I discovered something about kindness and happiness during the holidays, because I wasn’t either. I was in a generally grumpy mood. I think reason was that we are supposed to be nice, kind, and cheerful during the holidays. It's like a societal obligation.
It's not really about being good for goodness sake, it's about being good because it's expected.
When the holidays were over I was like WOW, I can be happy, cheerful and kind now because I want to be, not because I'm expected to be!
And that's what this post is all about. Simply this happiness and kindness must come from inside you, it really can't be put on you by the expectations of others. It doesn't matter whether it's family, friends, school, work, religion, society or anything else.
To be happy, kindness and happiness has to be something you WANT to be and do with no obligation or expectation, it can not be something you feel you HAVE to do. It just won't work that way!
The good thing is that happiness is a very strong human desire, so it is something most people want
