Check on yourself, look into yourself if you are emotionally dependent on anyone. Ask yourself if you are looking for a partner, or if you complain a lot

Instead of looking for happiness outside, you must always look for happiness within yourself. We should realize that the people won’t fill up our voids of life, we should do it by ourselves.

Find a comfort zone with yourself, sit back, and listen to your own thoughts and analyze your own problems, find the solution which suits you the best. When you get comfortable with yourself you do not need any other person to tell you otherwise.

Wants and needs are one of the things which destroy happiness. Look into your needs and check which needs are required and which aren’t.
- Accept your responsibilities
Accept the fact that nobody bothers more than you, yourself. Be responsible for your own happiness and power. Accept that nobody is going to help you with your problems, you have to solve your problems all by yourself.
