It is Your Moral Duty to Be Happy
It is your moral duty to be happy: however you cannot exercise this duty by clutching unrealistic beliefs, struggling with unworkable assumptions, juggling painful images, jumping to false conclusions, running with impulsive decisions or hasty judgements Sufi Hazarat Inayat Khan
You probably heard it before, that happiness is an inside job. It is truly your own responsibility. Being happy involves making choices that may sometimes piss other people off, that may not be popular or that may make you feel guilty based on unquestioned core beliefs.
This is not to say that you have to be a complete jerk! It merely suggests that guilt, people pleasing and holding others responsible for your own happiness is a recipe for disaster.
So, find a way to make yourself happy, make the choice, do the thing, learn the lessons and do something that makes you happy every day.
