… self-gratification through your relationships will never get you the happiness you’re looking for. Happiness cannot be directly pursued, it must ensue as the unintended consequence of genuinely loving someone else.
Benjamin Hardy, PhD
Ben, I can’t agree on this. Why do you link happiness with “someone else”? The one becomes truly happy when does something useful for others, for society, when self-fulfills. Isn’t it? And two happy people — are those, who can build a happy family, because they have no need in “someone else” to be happy.
If you have time, could you, please, explain what you thought linking happiness and “someone else”?
