You don’t need things to make you happy, if you think you do, your looking in the wrong place for happiness.
Being happy because bad things are happening to other people is a false equivalence and honestly, makes you a bad person. You should feel sad that those people are suffering. You should be resentful of those who are greedy or stingy. You should be angry at those who cause suffering, but you should always be thankful for what you have, give all you can, and graciously accept the kindness of others. ~ Edward McCain
I’m extremely happy with my little life. Had to unexpectedly down size and at first I couldn’t imagine living without things like cable tv or antique shopping, now I realize things just weigh you down. ~ Sandra Diane
