“Whoever is happy will make others happy too.” -Anne Frank

If a woman like Anne Frank can think like this, shouldn’t we be able to do likewise?

I know my problems are nothing compared to what she went through. I know when those around me are happy; I am much more likely to feel better. At least when it’s my family.

However, I have to admit to always feeling like I am on the outside looking in. This means when those on the “inside” are happy, I am much more likely to feel down. Not a good feeling.

I like the thought of making others happy. So how can I, how can you, make this happen? How can we choose happiness?
