Being in a state of happiness and experiencing happiness through external factors two separate emotional energies. You need a good balance of the two. At times when you’re alone you need to know how to create a feeling of non-dependent happiness by using your imagination, creativity, memories, meditations and whatever interpersonal tools you have at hand.
When you’re with other people and you’re truly enjoying yourself in their company and they in yours, carve those moments into the stone of your memory and the feelings from those moments will last even longer.
The two will feed each other and so the more you put this into practise the more your experience of life will become a happy one.
