Who is responsible for your happiness?

I am an empath, I feel SO HARD. My husband says I am an ” emotional sponge”; I unintentionally suck the feelings of off of people. I know , almost just by looking at them how they feel, and what they need. Now this can be both a good and bad thing. On the good side, I really feel that I can help people; I can look at them with the loneliness in their eyes and say ” I am here for you, I know what you are going through”. The bad? It can be emotionally draining, and I am left feeling alone. What about my feelings? Can you see me? Well, the truth is that you are responsible for your own happiness.

The first step in caring for your own happiness is belief that you are enough. YOU are enough, just the way you are. ” But Erin, I curse, I eat junk food, I ignore my friends, and I feel unhappy; how is that all ok? How do I accept all of that?” YOU have the power to make changes in your life, that you feel you need to make, but the key to implementing those changes is acceptance from within. Your happiness is NOT dependent on the acceptance or approval of others, and not in finding  a NEW you, but accepting the  REAL  you.

We are both the source and cause of our own well being, and even though it may often seem like the way you feel is caused by the situations you find yourself in, that is not true. You are the ruler of your emotions, and can decide how you want these events to play out. Remember, When we are self accepting, we embrace ALL aspects of ourselves, an that is truly what will lead us to the path of lifelong happiness.

Repeat after me: I am enough, I love myself, and I love the life I am living. <3
