What's Your Share In My Happiness?


I was reading this book yesterday and I can't help but wonder now... We give shares of our happiness to all the people we know and whenever someone decides to not care of our happiness anymore they leave! That’s when you realize that a share of your happiness is missing! It’s like a circle that we build around us of people holding on to our happiness in their hands... But what needs to be remembered is that- it is you, at the end of the day, who give these people shares of your happiness... You need to decide how much can you trust each person with a share of your happiness! Don’t we always tend to give a major share to just one person? A person who claims to give us all the happiness in the world but never really does. And when this one person betrays you… you realize that you lost out on a huge share...

Have I been able to see the rest of the hands holding their shares at this time? They are still holding on to their shares even when you were busy ignoring them… They were still there carefully nurturing the decreasing happiness share they had... Do we realize that no matter what… We do tend to take the people who love us the most for granted? And that’s when we keep reducing the happiness share in their hands... If I could just resolve to trust the right people with my share of happiness, I know I can stay happy! I don't want to loose trust in all those other hands just because the hand that held the maximum share betrayed me… I am going to learn to trust the other hands again. That’s life! Right?

well ya one tends to trust people really easily and then u r bound to give that person the share of happiness he/she deserves but i'd say that when this person walks out on u, u do miss d moments n happiness u shared......But u dont loose anything....that huge share is not lost, u still have the memories within ur heart which nobody can snatch away from u.......
u know, we do not make an effort to value what is with and around us......we just have to look around.....and all the sweetness that we r looking for is closer than we think!!!!!!!!!
one can remain happy all the time........all that matters is 'do we want to or not'
