It went a little like, it was him, his habits, the way he talked and those annoying habits. Of course I couldn’t be happy while he was being so god dam annoying. We were at the beginning of our relationship and I didn’t know it then but we were in trouble. And one day someone was talking and I was listening and they said;
Wherever you go, there you are.
I have since heard it applied to a number of things. But on this day, I heard, if I was unhappy with him, I would be unhappy with the next guy and the next guy and the next. That I was the problem. Or the source. That it was up to me to be happy. He couldn’t do it if he tried. And by gosh, he was trying. I had to be my own happy.
And all of a sudden, he wasn’t so annoying anymore. Ha! Double bonus. So tell me. Where in your life could you do with being your own happy?!
