Saying “You Make Me Happy”

“It may feel that way at the beginning of a relationship, but ultimately everyone is responsible for their own thoughts and feelings. Therefore, you cannot rely on someone else to make you happy. I encourage people to maintain their own interests, hobbies, and social lives, so that they can maintain a strong sense of self and find joy outside of their relationship. Additionally, I encourage them to be mindful of their thinking patterns and to take responsibility for their emotional experience.” —Laura Kelly, psychotherapist at Urban Balance
