Keeping Others Happy At Every Cost. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing about keeping others happy at every cost. To give happiness is considered a virtue. Please try and make others happy, say the thinkers. I don’t know what precisely they mean by that. So unless I meet one of them and find out the statement’s true meaning, let me put my ideas here and think.
Keeping Others Happy At Every Cost
If accidentally, I step on someone’s foot on a busy street, and the other person is not ready to accept my apologies but thinks that he will be happy only by beating me to a pulp, shall I let him do that? Should I reason with him or make him feel satisfied?
All right, I lie down here without offering any resistance, and you, please be happy by kicking me as much as you want. After getting severely beaten, I try to reach a hospital and find out that the doctors and nurses will only feel happy by making me wait for endless hours.
If I request them to look at me sooner, they will get angry because many other patients have to be attended to, and the medical staff is overburdened, or so one thinks. So I make them happy by remaining in pain for a long and then getting operated on wrongly.
My liver was injured, but the surgeon wrongly operated on my kidney. Shall I make them unhappy by complaining about this blunder? The poor surgeon is already burdened with work and home-related problems.
How can I add to them? So? I keep quiet.
What about my family?
They want me to get healthy again and begin taking their care as soon as possible. But I am in no state to do that. What shall I do now? How can I make my family unhappy? Some have planned vacations; some have to buy other expensive gadgets. Who will pay for all those expenses if I stay in the hospital? So I try going back to work and making money.
But I am so weak and hurt that I cannot work.
My boss feels he will be delighted to remove me from the job. I accept that without protest. Protesting may make him unhappy. I walk out on the road and am very happy to be killed by a drunk driver.
In the whole sequence, if I take a new birth and go back to every character of this story, I will be surprised to find that they are all very unhappy with me.
My family thinks that I cheated on them by not getting treated properly.
My surgeon will think I should have given him one more chance of operating upon me and making me sicker.
The boss thinks I left a critical position that is now difficult to fill.
The drunk driver thinks I intentionally came across the car and got hit.
Life is complicated, whichever way you live
Should someone happily surrender to a rapist to make him happy?
Strange thinking always produces inconsistent and painful results.
Before we start getting beaten by others, we must think about it and decide to determine if they have that right.
Otherwise, they will always remain unhappy, and we shall always get hit.
Does this make us think?
I hope you enjoyed that.
Impressive! Very often, we don’t need to think so much about everything. Making simple things complicated.
Wow! On point! So important to set boundaries.
each of us needs to find and set and respect our boundaries, as well as that of others.. happiness is after all within us, not outside

I love this and think that happiness is what we as individuals make it. No one can make us happy, but instead, we should find happiness within ourselves.
Happiness comes from the inside or so I believe. No one else can give us that or take it away.
I needed to read this so much!! Set those boundaries girl, it’s so important!
There’s a limit to everything.
