on being happy

I've learned there are people in this world who would give anything for others to fail. These are the same people who spend their time exerting negative thoughts into the world and saying belittling words. These are all actions of unhappy people. These people are missing something in life and in themselves. This missing piece causes them to act callously and blackens their heart. They try to fill the void by putting others down, in order to lift themselves up. By putting other people down, they feel like they are bringing others down to their level. They feel equal. It's a vicious cycle that never truly ends until they can heal themselves from the inside out.

If you have someone like this in your life, maybe it's time to take a few steps back. Their toxicity isn't welcome in your life. You can't grow with them constantly trying to drag you down. Goodbyes are scary, but sometimes necessary. It could be a friend, a family member, or an acquaintance. The world has mean people in it, it's nothing new. Don't let them affect you. It can be hard not to question yourself, doubt yourself, or wonder what you're doing wrong. But don't. Move on, and realize it's them. Not you. All you can do is feel compassion for them. All you can do is hope they can heal themselves and fill whatever void they have. It's their journey, not yours. It's not up to you to fix them, and you definitely shouldn't be knocked down because of them. Be happy.
