Observations of truly happy people

1. They see the best in others
 
Happy people don’t put people down. Happy people don’t hate. They give the benefit of the doubt and they look for the good in whoever they meet. You won’t catch them gossiping or hating on anyone.
 
2. They know who they are
 
Happy people aren’t trying to impress everyone else because they are indifferent to being liked. They make their decisions independent of consensus and they don’t mind being the odd one out.
 
3. They give
 
Happy people are givers, not takers. They are paying compliments, making introductions and doing favours without keeping score. They trust that somehow the love all comes back around, and invariably it does.
 
4. They let things slide
 
Happy people don’t hold grudges or seek revenge. They’re not bitter and twisted. They forgive and forget. They are happy in their own skin with nothing to prove. Instead of holding onto anger they let it go.
 
5. They aren’t easily offended
 
Happy people don’t walk around with inflated egos. They are difficult to offend because they don’t take themselves too seriously. They see opinions for what they are and can learn from criticism.
 
What else?
 
 
P.s. This was originally shared on my Twitter if you’d like to say hi over there too.
