Comes from Dr. Lastname.
Another outstanding post about "Meh-xpectations". And I love that phrase!
Anyway, for those of you who might know someone who doesn't have the joy gene, this is a good one to read. This post includes that absolutely incredible nugget:
"many good people can’t be happy"
Did you all hear that?
So stop banging your head against the wall, stop blaming yourself and stop trying to make people happy.
Happy comes from within.
You can't re-wire the emotional kishkes of anyone else.
Read this whole thing.
