Do you depend too much on others for happiness?

I realize.. that maybe I do.. or I have been.. although.. the crap I have been dealing with.. affects me less and less.. and the things people attempt to do to me.. shocks and affects me less as well.. I guess it's the wisedom that comes with age and experience..

    I have my hubby,who is great and we have a giving relationship..So we depend on each other,it works.
    But i don't depend on anybody for my happiness,,,i control that..If i depended on others to make me happy,i would be one unhappy Gracie.lol

    I've NEVER depended on another for my own happiness.
    You must first be happy with yourself.

    I grew up not able to depend on the ones that society tells you will always be there for you. My mother, Number 1 and my father, Number 2. He's Number 2 only because he did not live with us. My family, including my siblings, had so many secrets that it was impossible to get a real understanding of just what reality is. I decided to leave home in hopes of maybe having a clear understanding of what reality is. I got one, thanks to the Sisters of the Good Shepard and eleven other girls who had similar home lives. I am free not to be religious, too. The thing is, where there was so much honesty living there, it didn't match the world. I still feel like a misfit because what I didn't realize is that my family was but a microcosm of the world. This world is truly sick, the people in it don't want to face reality so it leaves me at odds with the world all the time. I know what right is but it seems no one else does...so where does it get me? I know the world will never change and I will forever be a misfit. Funny, that you should ask this question when I've been thinking all week about this. What does one do when reality is staring at you in the face every day but seems to forever evade others? Just keep hoping for some understanding somewhere.

    My wife and I try to cheer each other up when things look bleak, but that's it. If you're waiting for someone else to make you happy, you might be waiting a loooong time. Sure, we make each other happy -- but that happiness starts within and is contagious -- not something you just sit and watch from the sidelines. *grin*

    Maybe. None of the 3 cats here are mousers. They'll play with it, bat it around, and when it ceases to amuse them they walk way. I think that's typical with male cats. *grin*

    You should have seen my cat's mother. SHE was a real "mini-tigress". *grin*

    oo that's usually the case.. the cat we have.. she would scratch my hubby or I .. without any qualms.. but when it came to bugs.. she would just "tell on it" and expect us to kill it.. but then one time ..she ate one.. and gagged.. like "ewwww"

    Not that my cat never tried... before his sister died and he never went outside again... he brought a squirrel in, and stood presenting it's lifeless corpse as a present. I was very flattered... didn't even care that it had tire tread marks down the back of it... *grin*

    I am doing alright.. back together with hubby.. but now he is in Laramie saving our cat.. so I am camping out at mom's house.. I am now thinking about a possibility for a future opportunity for myself and hubby.. we might live in Sthrn Cali and manage property for his dad and his very rich uncle.. we would get a house.. and a nice living.. man.. it sounds better and better.. I think I should make a poll about it.. how are you honey?

    Southern California is MY dream homestead. Lived there in the 70's and 80's and LOVED it! The opportunity sounds intriguing! Making a poll may be a great idea!! Don't ever forget how much you are loved and missed here! : )
