Happiness is subjective. Your definition might vary from those around you. To me, happiness means living a fulfilled life. One I look forward to each day. One where I rely more on myself to feel better, and less on others. One where I chase meaningful goals, instead of chasing people.
Selflessness is a virtue, we are taught. It’s important to place others over self. That’s how society functions, they say.
But only someone who takes care of herself can take care of others. To be your best for others, you first must extend that luxury to yourself.
How should you take care of yourself? By nourishing your body, mind and soul. By feeding them the right food. By being a lifelong learner; learning things which broaden your perspective. Do this for a few years and you realize that there are no boundaries, except the ones in your mind.
